Aurora Borealis Deer

I have another card based on the current The Heart Desires Challenge for you today. I used the element of creatures for my non-traditional holiday card.

This card took very little time at all and yet it looks like it took forever, right?  I used Ken Oliver pre-printed Color Burst paper (all the glam without all the mess!!!!) as the background. I did add my own touch by spattering it with Copic Opaque White snow.

The deer trio are sponged mostly with DI Seedless Preserves plus a bit of whatever was left on the round ink applicator, probably Wilted Violet. I think they're so pretty in the purples. Imagine if they were like that in real life. What a different world we'd be living in!

I'm entering this in Daring Cardmakers November Elemental Challenge (using colors, trees, reflective surfaces--sequins in my case)

  1. Dramatic and pretty at the same time, the white trees look lovely against the coloured backdrop!

  2. This is lovely. The background is fantastic against the trees and the little deer family are so cute. Thanks for joining in at Daring Cardmakers. xxx

  3. Gorgeous card Toni. LOVE that background. xx

  4. WOW! I'm very impressed with your card - and it really looks like it took you forever to create it.
    Thanks for sharing it with the Daring Cardmakers.
