I love this Serendipity stamp call Buck but over here we would normally call it a Stag, hence my title. It is one of those stamps that you can change to suit the season and that is what I have done here.
Used for this card:
Serendipity Stamp - Buck.
Sheena Douglass Frosty Ice Embossing Folder.
Adirondack Ink - Stonewashed and Espresso.
Distress Ink - Shaded Lilac.
Memento Ink - Bamboo Leaves.
Snippets of White and Silver Mirri Card.
White Base Card cut to fit a 6" x 4" envelope.
Cosmic Shimmer White PVA.
I started with a snippet of white card and embossed it using the Frosty Ice EF, and I cut it down so that it would fit the A6 sized card as the original size is 5" x 7". I then stamped the Stag into the centre using the Espresso ink, but as it is a large stamp I masked off some of the top and bottom so it fitted the space better. I blended the ink a little with a waterbrush and then added the sky using the Stonewashed and a little of the Espresso and Shaded Lilac to give the impression of distant trees. I also added some Espresso and Bamboo Leaves ink for the foliage poking through the snow.
I finished with the White PVA on the tree and the snow in front of the Stag, and then die cut a sentiment from a snippet of Silver Mirri card. I then layered it up using another Silver Mirri snippet and adhered to the white base card. I have shown it here without the personal sentiment which obviously I added before sending it.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope to see you again soon.
