A Summer Scene

Or at least this is a scene we see a lot by our farm. The deer are quite abundant and many times we see a deer on the bridge that goes across the river by our farm. The die used on this scene had no leaves so I took the liberty of adding some with a Bic Ultra Fine Line Marker. I really like this and it will be a birthday card for a guy too!



The die used for this card is from Memory Box and is called Woodland  Bridge Frame. The tree frame and the bridge and deer as well as the outer frame are all part of the die set. You can use them together or separately. I chose to use them in a similar fashion as was pictured on the Memory Box envelope.

This scene was added over the top of a blended background that I did with Gina K. Designs inks and the Life Changing  Blending Brushes. And I chose to use a sentiment from my Impression Obsession Life Stuff Sentiments stamp set. I stamped it with Gina K. Designs Amalgam black ink onto Ivory card stock. I then cut out the sentiment by hand, All of this was then added to an Ivory card stock base with Gina K. Designs Connect Glue to complete the design.

Below is a close up to show off the pretty design along the frame of this die. I really like that.



I am entering this in the Dies R Us Challenge #123-Summertime.

And when I was cleaning awhile back I put some of my dies into a safe place and for the life of me I cannot find that safe place. I searched for over an hour and finally decided to just go with this scene. I do like this scene but it puzzles me as to where I put that box of dies. They were all from one company and so I kept them separate from the rest. Hopefully, I will run across them one of these days. LOL Just goes to show I might have too many things.

Thanks for visiting and I wish all of you a great evening.

God bless,
Verna

BEAUTIFUL scene, Verna! That frame is a beaut too with all that pinpoint detail, and your handmade leaves are fab.

As for the missing dies? My husband calls them comets -- you know, they disappear, then every 100 years they make their appearance, and then they're gone again! lol Hope you find them soon :o)

I have loved this die set since I first saw it! So sweet and pretty! I can't believe you drew those leaves yourself. They're perfect! Gosh, I sure hope you find your box of dies. I know you will eventually, but it will be when you're not looking for it. Good luck!
