Oh Deer!

A beautiful texture of monochromatic beauty is my inspiration today from Tag #7 - Linda's Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I also was inspired by the Card Concept Krafty challenge which I definitely am the shabby chic style on this one!

 Linda's tag is full of beautiful monochromatic texture.  I am seeing so many new dies that are so pretty and I am getting very tempted to buy them.  I am improvising with one of my favorite dies (Sizzix Deer)

I painted a kraft envelope with white paint.  I then layered on tattered rose, vintage photo, gold distress stain, tea dye, and picket fence distress spays to cover the background and he pine branches.  I embossed the envelope an deer with an embossing paste called Wood Icing that is a neutral color.  

At the end I added a sponging of white on he surface of the embossing to bring forth the embossed layer.  

Have a fabulous day!
