Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession “You’re An Animal” design team challenge to use an animal on our project. I love making fall scenes and took this opportunity to create one around surrounding a deer. The deer is from the Deer Trio paired with the Tree Frame, Foliage, Oak Leaves and Rake, All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2 and Fir Tree and Small Fir Tree.
I started by securing the scene base and stamp in my MISTI and stamped them across the whole sheet to create a background for the scene. I applied Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area of the scene using an ink blending tool. I cut the tree frame, deer, leaves and foliage using white cardstock. I misted the tree frame well with a mini mister and then applied Gathered Twigs directly to the cardstock with my ink pad. I know the tree looks almost black in the photos but in person it looks dark brown. I used mini applicators to apply Fired Ink, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade to the leaves and foliage. I used both Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs and a mini applicator to apply ink to the deer. I hand cut a small section of cardstock in white to use for the ground area and applied Peeled Paint with a mini applicator.
I applied double stick tape to the back of the lower portion of the frame and attached the ground piece. Then I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached the the tree frame. I attached a second layer of mounting tape to the back of the tree frame and attached background scene. I applied double stick tape to the back of the framed scene and attached it to the card base. I attached several of the small oak leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents. The deer was attached to the scene base with mounting tape. I tucked the foliage branches in around the deer and attached with glossy accents. I finished by adding a couple falling leaves in the sky area with glossy accents.
