Woodland Wishes


I inked up some old favorites today to play along with a few of my favorite challenges! New stamps always seem to stay on  my desk and get inked often...while old favorites gather some dust in a drawer! The moment I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the theme at The Paper Players, I knew which set I wanted to use.  I then just had to find it!  I store my stamps by theme, which you would think would be Christmas.  No such luck, so then I tried animals and then plants...not there either!  I figured it must have hit the de-stash pile by accident!  It was always a favorite set, so I was bummed that I might have sold my last set! I went back through Christmas for the third time and the set had manged to fall back behind all the others!  So, it definitively needed some love! My deer and trees are from the Woodland Wishes stamp set, retired many years ago!  I created my card based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches-

And the Into the Woods theme at The Paper Players (which is why I had my heart set on this particular stamp set!)



I added some great texture to my card in many forms.  My white panel was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder, then topped off with white and clear sequins.  My trees and deer were applied in layers for added dimension as well.  My deer stamp is totally plain, I added in eyes with Nuvo drops.  I first tried just a black pen, but the eyes were really dull.  The Nuvo drops brings the eyes to life with a glossy finish.
