Belated Birthday Celebrations @STAMPlorations day 2

Today I've gone all wintery with my inspiration design.
Here's a card made with one of the new slimline stencils Trees.

For the background, I first added some black Brusho over the stencil which I laid on some scrap paper resting on a large acrylic block. I then misted it with water and took a print with some scrap paper, lifted off the stencil, flipped it over and laid it over a panel of watercolour paper, taking it away quickly to avoid the liquid Brusho from seeping under the stencil and blurring the trees too much.
Whilst waiting for it to dry, I die cut three of the Leaping Deer from black, brown and white card, gluing them together so that the brown was in the middle and a tiny bit of each of the darker colours was visible. 
Once dry, I cut my panel down to size and added a torn snow drift stamped with the Season's Greetings from Christmas Bell Medley and added the whole to a DL base card. I placed my deer over the background and added some extra sparkly snow amongst the trees with some Stickles.
