Last Friday, my first SU order arrived, in it was a stamp set I fell in love with immediately after I saw it on the new catalog. This stamp set is called The Wilderness Awaits and each of this images is stunning in their detail. I picked the majestic male deer image for my card and I added some free hand background of snow topped mountains and trees.
For the snow on the mountain's top, I painted it with SU white craft ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, then I sponged a bit of Basic Black to give a bit of dimension, continuing down with a light sponging of Lost Lagoon and Wild Wasabi. The trees were done with an old sea sponge with a bit of Wild Wasabi ink.Hardwood background stamp and clear embossing powder. I stamped the Happy Father's Day with the Teeny Tiny Wishes using the Stamp-a-majig to fit it into the die cut label.
Here is the challenge banner that inspired this card.
It's a challenge in itself for me to make masculine cards so I hope you like my take on The Paper Players challenge for this week.
I truly appreciate your visit and your comments, this means the world to me. If you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask.
Have a wonderful week.
