Color Challenge

The new color challenge at Lily Pad Cards is sponspored by Tiffany Doodles

Each DT got to choose a digital stamp and I chose the Fawn Set which includes some very sweet deer images.

Kathy chose these colors for us to play with

I used the 3 colors but in a softer tone,  especially for the green color, for my inspirational card here. 
I first sized the sentiment and the Tiffany Doodle image as I wanted - then printed on a piece of  copy paper for a guide as to where I should stamp the background. I then stamped the background on a sheet of Hero Arts Eggshell notecard and ran this through the printer again - now printing the images onto the stamped part. I printed the deer image onto white cardstock and colored this in (simple coloring) with copic markers. 
(it probably wouldn't have made much of a difference stamping after printing with the soft bg - but I was not too sure about it).

 I used Ranger Enamels (black for the nose and white for the dots) for some added dimension. The yellow color is represented in the pearls/gems.

Font: LemonChicken
Other: HA gems & pearls, heart punch, May Arts ribbon (colored with Ranger Rusty Hinge distress ink, Ranger Enamel accents, copic makers.

Thanks for stopping by today!
