Deer in the Forest

NCC Green Deer 06447
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT580) asks us to plant a tree. So here are a couple of trees along w/ some deer & a bird.  If truth be told, this particular tree was planted a while ago & has just been waiting in the wings. 

To make my silhouette card, I started w/ some dp that has a faint green pattern around the edges. I stamped the trees, deer, bird & clouds w/ two shades of green Memento & took a dry blender pen to add shading before the ink completely dried. The littlest deer was stamped twice w/ the darker green to appear more in the shadows. The ground was first stamped w/ the image in the cottage green, then parts of it again in the pine. I used the Belles Vignes image to add some vines all around the panel w/ the pear tart ink.  Parts of the Find Beauty image were stamped along the ground first w/ the ivy ink, then w/ white ink on top of the dark areas.
