About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

For you........ Deer!!!

I hope this one conveys the scene I was trying to create.

Calm, serene, quiet........
Here in Georgia, we have a lot of avid hunters.  
Yes,  I know a lot and most of my family are hunters.

Myself, not so much. 
The only thing I hunt for is more crafting supplies.....

Supply list:
All the following stamps were from Viva Las Vegastamps! 
May you have...Sentiment #6922
Deer looking  #6176
Mountain range  #6926

I first stamped all the images on white card stock.  
When stamping the mountain range I slipped just a bit, so I turned
the paper around and stamped again. 
Much to my surprise {with a deer in the headlight look}....
I had created a scene with a lake......
I then started chalking the colors onto the mountains, lake and sky. 
White gel pen was used to make a few water lines. 
Grass was created by using a grass border punch and inked on the edges.
Then,  I colored the deer using my color pencils, OMS and a stump.
Fussy cut him out and used dimensionals to make him stand out.
Layered the sentiment onto a label punch I cut to just outline the 4 sides. 
Punched a yellow moon and adhered everything together using miracle tape. 

Until later, doe.......Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!

Hi Crystal hope that you are well, this is absolutely fantastic I love that image of the deer which looks so magnificent against that wonderful background this reminds me of one of my all time favourite films The Deer Hunter. Superb creation.
