[FQCB #29 element: stamped deer and more deer in washi tape scene]

I like the pairing of dark charcoal specialty paper with the stamped deer ! I was initially going to keep this as black, white, gray/silver but then I thought the bit of green geometric paper could be sort of like faux grass. I like how the white thread is circling the silver moon. The idea was to create a dark night scene with active deer.

[FQCB #29 elements: 3 deer ]

Delightful deer card, Nana Connie! The image was printed in grayscale and then she applied watercolor and/or polychrome pencils for color! Great ideas for techniques! It's an awesome autumn season scene!

DT member Dottie:

Dottie's blog

[FQCB #29 elements: deer focal die-cut and more in the paper ]

It's wonderful to have Dottie's creativity expressions again on FQCB!! We've missed her wonderful cards! Such a terrific interpretation for the theme! The kraft card base and dark brown yarn add more rustic woods reminders to her card!

DT member Diane: has stepped down due to the need of putting family first. We honor her decision and wish her and her family our very best. We will miss her outstanding creative cards!
