Believe in Yourself

Hey everyone, Deanna here with a new project for you from Dies R Us.  Here is what I made.

I love the sentiment that comes with this little stamp and die set.  The stamps and the die are both from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the little deer onto some watercolor card stock and colored him with my Spectrum Noir Aqua pencils and blended him with a water brush.  After I had him colored I die cut him out using my Big Shot Machine.

My card base is white card stock and and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I cut some yellow card stock at 4" X 5 1/4" for my next mat.  The patterned paper is cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  I then cut another piece of yellow card stock at 1 1/2" X 3 3/4" and ran that through my big shot to emboss it.  I then adhered it to my card front.  I used this to help ground the little deer so he didn't look like he was floating in plaid land.  Finally I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.


I hope you will join in on the fun over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog.  Be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us store to do some shopping while you are here. And don't forget to like us on our Facebook page.  You don't want to miss out on anything that is happening at Dies R Us.
