You know you love a stamp set a lot when you bookmark it after seeing it on someone's blog and months later you still love it enough to go back and get it. That's the story with this "Oh Deer" stamp set by Lil' inkers. I was smitten after seeing this card on Joan Bardee's blog way back in May, but I waited... and then when I was a lucky random winner in Darnell's most recent NBUS (never before used schtuff) challenge I went shopping. Of course, you can never get just one thing, can you? More on that later. Many thanks to Joan and Darnell!
As soon as I had time I sat down and made three cards, similar, but with small differences. All are watercolored with Tombow markers on Arches 140 lb hot pressed watercolor paper. The first is on a red card base.
The next two are on a kraft-color base. Each uses a different paper from the retired BasicGrey "Jovial" collection, and the curve is cut with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One. I changed up the banner color on each card and gave one a blue wash in the background. Finished with some splatters toward the top of each image.
There's one more sentiment in the set, plus snow and holly berry stamps, but I'll save those for another time. Three cards is all I had in me when it comes to production line stamping. I hope you enjoyed! These are my first Lil' inkers stamps and they've got me hooked now. Have a happy day!
