Winter Stag

Today I am sharing a card I made for A milestone birthday recently celebrated by my DH one he was not very happy with....but he loved his card lol

I used a new stamp to me first time inked from Clarity Stamps and my old favourites distress inks.

Stag was stamped in black versafine ink and I used masking fluid to mask him first then I applied Distress Inks stormy sky, faded jeans and chipped sapphire to create the winter scene behind him, Stag was then filled in with Vintage photo. This was then cut with a circle die, next layer was inked in stormy skies and faded jeans for the background, last layer again card cut with die, tattered lace. Sentiment stamps are Kanban.

I would like to play at the following challenges
