Winter Antlers for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

Woo hoo! It's new launch time - Leonie is on Hochanda TV with a fab new set of Entwined dies and some lovely stamps to go with them.

 The first card I wanted to show you is using the 'Entwined Christmas Tree- Frost' die. This is a beautiful design but if you've been following me for a while you'll know that I often find other ways of using things, so I've not used it as a tree at all. If you turn it upside down it looks like fancy antlers :D

 To start off my card I painted a square of black cardstock with white gesso, leaving some thinner patches for interest.

Next I 'painted' part of a Claritystamp deer with a black Spectrum Aqua marker

and stamped it onto my background.

 Next I cut a wavy shape in a piece of copy paper with my craft knife to use as a mask

and used a sponge and Distress Ink to add hills

There's a cute little fir tree at the bottom of the 'Christmas Cheer' stamp so I inked that up with black memento ink (I used post-it notes to mask off the rest of the stamp)

This was stamped several times over my 'landscape'

I stamped lots of snowflakes from the 'Swirls and Flakes' set around the edges of my card, using second, third and fourth generation ink.

To do the deer's antlers I cut the 'Frost' die from silver mirri card and snipped off the tree top, leaving me two lovely swirly bits. I glued them on top of the deer's head with cosmic shimmer glue and layered it onto a 7"x7" card with some papers from the Wild at Heart paper pad from Trimcraft.

For the sentiment I cut the 'Winter' die from white centura pearl and stamped 'Wishes' from a previous stamp set (Flight to Freedom) onto a circle of the same card. They're layered up onto the base card with strips of two more of the papers.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
 Winter Wonderland Show us your gold/silver and or an embossed background

My teamies have some gorgeous samples to show you too. I have links to their blogs on my sidebar --->

 Leonie will be back on Hochanda tomorrow (Thursday 11th August) at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and 7pm.
You can watch Hochanda live online, Sky channel 663, Freeview 39 (6am - 9pm) or Freesat 817.

I hope you'll pop back again tomorrow when I'll have another card to show you,

Utterly inspirational and how clever of you to see such potential in all these die cuts and stamps, and then share your fantastic ideas with us all!
This is so beautiful and the antlers are really spectacular, but all the stamped detail is also gorgeous :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
