I created the background first using different shades of blue distress ink (chipped sapphire, salty ocean and weathered wood). In chipped Sapphire i went over the whole thing using Tim Holtz-ledger-script-stamp-set.. Then in watering can archival I stamped using tim-holtz-tree-line-stamp set.
Next I added the deer cut using an older die from Sizzix. First i had used the distress paper mosaic kit to make up the mosaics on a piece of card. I applied medium 1 - allowed it to dry then coloured ith with blue DI. Then I stuck on the blue paper pieces using medium 2 and finally after this was dry added medium 3 to the paper pieces - it gives them a relief not truely visible in this piece.
Here's a closer look! I also stamped the sentiment too.
I hope you have a great day!
Lots of love and hugs!!
