Essentials by Ellen Pin- Sights Challenge - Guest Designer!

Hi everyone!
I am super excited to be a Guest Designer for this month's Essential's by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge!

The Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge is a monthly inspirational challenge based on a Pinterest Inspired photo.  Full info and details located on the CLASSroom blog.  Look at this gorgeous photo collage!!!

Here is my card...

I stamped and embossed in silver the deer from the Season to Sparkle stamp set from watercolor card stock.  I then smooshed some Aquatini ink onto a clear block and watercolored the deer using a water brush.  I then die cut 3 more deer and layered them on top of one another to give dimension.  The sentiment is also stamped and embossed using the silver embossing powder.

I absolutely LOVE the Stitches Cover plate.  It gives a subtle, but unique texture to the card base.  So awesome!!!

I hope you are inspired and play along with us!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Ink:  Aquatini (Catherine Pooler Designs)
