Hi again everyone! This stamp set is very near and dear to my heart. It reminds me of both my Dad whom was an avid hunter and outdoors man, whom I lost last year but it also reminds me of our life living in BC for 4 years. Almost every month of year, we would see some kind of elk in the valley we lived in. I mean I didn't live in the "Elk Valley" for nothing!!! Here's a shot of an elk herd with the snow capped Rockies in the back ground...
So I had to take this beautiful new stamp set and just have fun with it! There is so much dimension built into the focal image that I knew I would have to layer it up...
I stamped my image 6 times onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock to get all of my layers! I fussy cut each layer and build my image back up to put inside my card's window.
I used the following Copic Collections to colour my layers:
Here's a better close up of all the different layers of paper... (Note to self: Next time, mask or eliminate the elk in the final sky layer! Too hard to line up all those super fine antlers.)
I even decorated the inside of my card too!
Hope you enjoyed my trip to the wilds today. Check out Christine Okken's blog next!
Join us back here tomorrow for a thankful Autumn set that will bless you!
I also created this card for the Christmas Card Challenges blog; Challenge #37; "Evergreen Trees".
