Oh Deer


I made the background using a failed die-emboss of clouds, by sponging with distress inks, painting with gesso, misting and EP clumping.  I have seen people using white 3d product (which we don't seem to be able to get here), so I experimented a bit and came up with 'clumping' EP by misting it with water, waiting for it to clump, then sprinkling it in the card, then heating.  Not quite the same effect but it suits me.

Beautiful card Carol. Love the sentiment paired with this image.
It is a shame that some of the products aren't available here - or at least take ages to reach our shores. Good idea to try and replicate it yourself.

This is so adorable, Carol! Love that darling reindeer and the CAS design. Time for a DT hat - I'm delighted to see you playing along in our "Anything Goes" challenge at QKR Stampede this fortnight. Good luck in the draw.
