Foiled Deer

 I'm super excited to be Guest Designer at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown again this week.  It's a Stash theme. The prompt is 'Gilding' and I really wanted to make an artsy card. 

I made some  templates and used Altenew & Distress Oxide Ink to sponge the Mountains. 
I then used the lightest colour mixed with Nuvo Glacier Paste and water to paint the top and bottom of the card. Next I added some silver highlights to the mountains with Sennelier silver oil pastel. 
I painted the  deer die-cut with Minc Reactive Paint and added gold foil with a lamminator.
The sentiment was stamped with Delicata Gold Ink. 
Stamps: Winnie & Walter Happy Christmas.

I hope you'll pop over to the  52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what the Design Team have created and will be inspired to join in the fun. 

                                  Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)
