The Oak Stag

Hello folks

..So Christmas is already behind us - a new year to look forward to.  Will you make any new year resolutions?   We are without water at the moment, there is a water main burst in the area and it is going to take a day or two to fix.  There is a water bowser set up at the village hall and we can buy bottled water, so we can manage for a while.  It has made me realise however just how much we rely on just being able to turn a tap and there is water there.  What an amazing luxury that we take completely for granted!!  My new year resolution is to support Water Aid to help provide fresh, clean water for more people in the world - I am far more likely to do that than lose weight or get fit!

My card today is from the last Clarity TV show, I thought I had better get these posted as the next show is very soon!

I am always pleased to get deer stamps to work with, I think they are wonderful creatures.
This lovely stag comes in a kit with the oak circle, two separate leaves and an acorn.
I stamped the deer first then masked him and stamped the oak leaf circle over the top.
I then placed a square mask over the top and stamped the single leaves and the acorn round the edge.  I used green and brown ink for this.
Then I got out the Spectrum Noir pencils and did lots of colouring.
As a final touch, I used a brown fine line pen to draw round the square, then mounted on to brown card.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and wish you a peaceful and successful 2015

  1. Another lovely card - great background. Hope water main soon fixed.

  2. Beautiful card Janet. I particularly love the border.

    I hope your water is back on soon. It's such a pain when it's off, especially for the toilet. We went through a period of ours being off quite regularly and I still keep a huge stash of bottled water under the stairs, just in case. x

  3. Stunning card Janet and yes I love the background too.
    Hope you soon get your water back , and that you have a fabulous New Year...x
