I began with the basic ATC Shelf shrine as the backdrop for this little piece. I inked it entirely with Distress Ink and then, it is very subtle in the photo, but I sprayed the placed the deer stencil on the background and spritzed it with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist in chalk. It left a pretty shimmer and a perfect shadow for my deer!
I edged the outline with Distress Stickles and then added some mica flakes at the bottom for snow. I love that part! It makes me happy!
The deer cutouts (from the stencil - you totally get both parts!) are adhered with foam tape to give them a TON of dimension! I added a bit of German Dresden scrap with some stickles for more snow and topped off the male deer antlers with a bit of sparkle, as well. YAY for sparkly snow on antlers!!!!
This piece has a bit of a calm to it that I just love. You can almost here that subtle crunch of deer hooves on the snow as they break the silence of winter. *sigh* So wonderful and so peaceful! Don't forget to capture some of that silence and that peace during the hustle bustle of this busy holiday season. We all need it. Don't forget to breath.
