Fanciful Deer

This was for the sketch challenge at SCS this week. I really liked the challenge and was excited to try it, but then really struggled with it. The deer is from Unity Stamp Co. I colored it with Koh-i-noor pencils and cut it out.

The layers are all sponged with Really Rust and Ruby Red. The three horizontal layers are patterned paper from Close to my Heart. The card base is Creamy Caramel.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a happy Friday!

You might have struggled Theresa but it's turned out beautifully. I wish I could get the same finish when I sponge inks. Mine are always patchy! Thanks for taking the time to leave a kind comment on my blog.
