Hi! I'm back and with a card I'm pretty excited to share. It's an idea that popped into my head and I just went for it. Normally I really think about things, but this one was basically a whim. I was looking over the Winnie & Walter WCMD challenges and they all started combining in my head and this card was the result. (I was inspired by the following W&W challenges: Metallic/Gold Challenge, Make it Masculine Challenge, and Partial Stamping Challenge as well as CTS#143.)
My favorite part of the card was a total accident. After having lots of fun partially stamping the deer from W&W's Winter Wonderland set in kraft, I went to ink up my deer in brown and got tons of ink on the acrylic block. I didn't want it to smudge my card, so I started to wipe off the block and accidentally swiped my deer image. The swipe looked like woodgrain, and I could have leapt with excitement. I'm pretty sure I did a little happy dance. I definitely plan to make that "mistake" again soon.
I wish I had been so clever on my own, but the sentiment was a happy accident as well. It must have been the lingering influence of Michele from my last card that helped me create a pun. I had planned to give this card to my brother-in-law, but now that I see that it reads "Just for you...deer", I've decided my husband will need to be the recipient of this one. :) I finished the card off with some sequins and was quite pleased that I managed to incorporate them into a masculine design. Thanks so much for visiting today and reading this long post! When I get excited about something it's hard for me to be concise. :)
