Season's Greetings

Good afternoon.
Just popping by to remind you all that the current challenge at STAMPlorations is ongoing until the end of the month.
This is my reminder project.


This time I've not used the theme of


but the sketch.

I've kept it pretty CAS, taking the sketch to be snowy hills and the deer for the three flowers. The sentiment has been moved as there wasn't room above the hills!

You may wonder which STAMPloration products I used, well I love the effect of a snow stencil but don't have one, perhaps that's one for the future Shery! So I used one of the tiny circle stamps from the Dee's Artsy Impressions Balloons and Banners set and repeat stamped it, then used white embossing powder to create the effect of falling snow. I made the background panel by stippling a mixture of DIs, Seedless Preserves, Mermaid Lagoon, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers onto a piece of white card.
The sketch suggested hills to me so I cut a pair using a MFT die then added some die cut deer, cutting the antlers off two of them. I placed the stag in the rear against the sky, a la Monarch of the Glen, it also gives the impression of him being larger than the does in the foreground even if he isn't in real life! The sentiment from Dee's Artsy Impressions Christmas Bell Medley is stamped in black.
That's about it from me, please check out the rest of the DT, GD  Suchi and join in, we'd love to see your interpretation.

I'd like to join in over at -
