Deer in the Meadow

There are those who like to be alone and those who DO NOT. I think more people enjoy the company of others. I believe that even when there is an individual task to be done, most people would prefer to perform it in the company of others. Just like the adage states, "Two heads are better than one." Here is a card to send to those who work with you, or to those you spend time with you throughout the year. What do you think?

   In the Meadow

   Pear Pizzazz A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

   Smoky Slate
   Baked Brown Sugar
   Pear Pizzazz
   Soft Sky
   Archival Basic Black


   Blender Pen
   Large Oval Punch
   Modern Label Punch

First, I sponged the top part of my Whisper White panel with Soft Sky.

I then stamped and fussy cut my deer image on a scrap piece of paper. I placed a bit of temporary adhesive on the back and set it aside. This is my mask.

I then stamped my deer image on the Whisper White panel.

I placed my mask over it and kept it in place during all of the stamping.

Next, I stamped my mountains in the background. Just one row.

I then stamped the trees. I inked them with Pear Pizzazz. Then wiped the ink off the trunk and branches using the blender pen. I then colored these in with Archival Basic Black. I breathed on the stamp to re-activate the ink and then stamped them on my panel.

I used Pear Pizzazz to stamp the grass all over the bottom of the card.

I colored in the mountains with Smoky Slate and the deer with Baked Brown Sugar. I did remove the mask before coloring. You can use watercolor pencils, chalk, or markers to color in the images. 

I stamped, punched, and sponged my sentiment. I adhered it to the Modern Label and then attached it using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a couple of black dots to the Modern Label and adhered the panel to the card base. The other Whisper White panel was adhered to the inside of the card.

  1. I love that sentiment. I have worked from home for the last several years and when the pandemic hit I ended up with more "co-workers". I can go either way with having people around me or working alone.

  2. Good for you, Lisa. I know many who can't seem to do or go anywhere alone. You are a gem to be able to adapt so quickly to the new situation. Thank you for sharing.
