Deer Trio

Hello lovely peeps

 This was going to be a quick and simple Christmas card that I could make a few copies of, but this one ended up taking a bit longer than anticipated :o)

We were playing with Brushos at our papercraft club last Thursday and I sprinkled Grey and Black Brusho through the 'Aspen Trees' mask/stencil by TCW onto watercolour card.

My first attempt came out really well but the second one was a bit splodgy.  I think I have rescued it though - I drew around the branches and tree trunks with a black fineliner pen and now it looks like a treescape again.

I teamed it up with 'Deer Trio' (Memory Box) die-cut from dark brown card and one of the sentiments from the Christmas Wishes stamp set by Lili of the Valley.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
