Hello internet, its been a while…
Just in case you were wondering, I haven’t been completely idle these last few months, just spending more time away from my desk than at it. But I have been creating, mostly Christmas cards, which I’ll share with you in the coming weeks.
It seems deer are a big trend again this year, from furnishings to wrappings and, of course, paper crafting. There are a fair few stamps and dies out there featuring these cute/majestic creatures. I created this stag head in Silhouette studio:
And teamed it with a bit of wood grain digi paper which I recoloured in Photoshop and found that the frame from my bargain £2 stamp set from the NEC was just the right size!
I also used the negative space:
Running the panel through an embossing folder and again pairing it up with the wood grain paper. I think an argument could be put forward for these to be quite masculine cards but I would love to receive them too, so… maybe that says more about me?
