I want to share a card I made using 0221-H, Two Deer, a design drawn by my mother in the 50’s.
Living in North Idaho, I frequently see white-tailed deer in my yard, and I like to stamp with images of wildlife that is frequently seen here. The image used on this card was drawn by my mother in 1949, and I made it into a rubber stamp in 1995. It has become one of my favorite stamps. What I particularly like about this drawing and many of my mother’s drawings, is that it captures the animal ready to run at a moment’s notice, almost as to say, “I’m aware you are there.”
“Doe by Branch,” 0225-K, was stamped in black dye ink and cut out with an asymmetrical die-cut, then layered onto an “Always Artichoke” die-cut that is one size larger. That was adhered to a base layer of homemade paper using dimensionals. The card base is Stampin’ Up’s “Always Artichoke.”
“Doe by Branches” is stamped in brown ink on white glossy card stock, sponged with light blue and brown ink, layered two times over a medium brown and a light blue card stock. This is layered onto a clay colored card stock which has the corners punched to provide a place for the fiber to attach. A few tiny pieces of the super sticky red double stick tape are used to hold the fiber down in a few spots. This is layered over white card stock. Card by Amy Vittori.
