Gentle Fawn

Hi stampers! I hope you are having a nice weekend. Here is a card I shared at the Gina K release party last week. I used images from my new set, Sending Sunshine.

I stamped the tree with Memento Tuxedo Black in and coloring with Copics, starting with E51.

Added E35.

Added E59.

For the leaves, I used a combination of YG03, YG05 and YG07. I colored the leaves in pretty loosely, not worrying about staying in the lines, to give the tree a fuller look. I filled in more heavily at the center of the tree and more sparsely at the edges.

For the flower clusters, I started with V06.

Then filled in with V01.

Then I sponged very lightly with Memento Cantaloupe.

Sponged with Memento Summer Sky.

Sponged with Memento New Sprout, masking with a piece of torn paper for a naturalistic look. I also sponged more heavily at the bottom so the background would recede.

Next, I stamped the fawn on another piece of Pure Luxury White cardstock and colored with Copics, starting with E53.

Added E31.

Added E33.

Added E39 for the deepest shadows. I added N5 on the hooves and muzzle, then blended with my blender pen on the muzzle.

I cut out the fawn and adhered it to the background. Then I added some small tufts of grass and shadows using Copics. I layered with Black Onyx and used a Pure Luxury Creme De Menthe cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Love how you put this card together, and as usual, so admire your coloring, Theresa. Can I make a little request? In your next stamp release would you consider doing Doggies. I just love your Purrfectly Delightful set!!!!!!!!!!
