Oh Deer

Using another daily calendar coloring image for today's card.  Oh Dear was the first thing I said when I flipped the calendar page and saw this image, but then the more I thought about it, I thought it would make a cool Autumn card.  I used another one of the backgrounds I made and showed in an earlier post using the Alcohol inks in the water. Did a little bit of sponging around the border while the background was still in the die.

Colored the image with pencils and cut out.

Very pretty, Connie! We've been seeing lots of deer around lately. The snow level in the mountains is getting low and they are moving to lower elevations. Sending hugs and blessings for your week's end. xo Karen
