Now, with all that out of the way, let’s get to my card!
I have recently moved house, to a brand new country too. From chilly Poland to warm Spain. It was a rather epic move and it’s taken it out of me quite a bit. I also had a really bad cold the week before the move and it hung on to me for a long time, and the whole 4 day road trip down I was very poorly. It was a bit of a pity party on wheels to be honest. It was an amazing trip though. If you missed my Insta stories, I have put them in a Epic Road Trip highlight so you can see for yourself.
To really pile on the ordeal, I am now having some back issues as well. Probably from carrying stuff up and down three flights of stairs. This house is spread out over FOUR floors….! If I don’t have buns of steel by Christmas, I won’t be happy, lol!
My craft room is still an absolute bomb site and there are boxes and stuff EVERYWHERE. I haven’t found all my stuff yet, and amongst the missing items are both my MISTI’s!!! I’m quite distraught and nearly panic ordered a new one as soon as I realised because I love my MISTI’s. There is still no sign of either of them.
Nevertheless, I persisted and made do. I stamped up the deer from the brand new Oh Deer set with Juicy ink so I could heat emboss it. At first I couldn’t find the heat gun either and nearly had a nervous breakdown! Eventually I found it and used a WOW! Embossing powder called Perissa.
The deer itself is coloured in with TwiMarkers from Arteza. I scribbled a little on a acrylic block and with a water colour brush, I coloured in the image. I’m working on putting together a YouTube video for this card too, and will post the link in this post once it’s done.
The TwiMarkers are very similar to Zig Markers but with a less hefty price tag.
With the coordinating diecut I cut it out, once coloured in and dry. This I set aside whilst working on the background. I have used three of the brand new ink colours from Catherine Pooler, Orange Peel, Pink Champagne and Sangria, as well as Tiara. These I ink blended on a panel with the Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios. To add some shimmer, I also splattered Red Gold water colour from Gansai Tambi’s Starry Color palette.
To finish off the card, I cut out the words ‘You’re A Deer Friend’ which is part of the coordinating diecut from the Oh Deer set. I used a lovely linen textured card stock and adhered these to the card, along with the deer, using Lawn Fawn glue tube adhesive. Once the whole shebang was on a card base, it was done!
