In the Meadow

It’s cold outside with about two inches on the ground (not a common occurrence here). What a perfect combination for another excuse to spend the morning stamping. This morning I’ve come up with four variations of the doe and her fawn, a stamp from the In the Meadow stamp set by Stampin’ Up. The sentiment, “Thinking of You,” is in their Wetlands stamp set. I love the font and the versatility of the sentiment—the message on the inside panel can match the needed occasion.

Color was added to the deer using the new Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils and the aqua pen.

In the Meadow for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop

Sign stating, "Amy's Inkin' Krew Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop, August 9, 2016."

Today the theme for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is “Last Blast of Summer.” To honor the occasion, I have chosen to feature In the Meadow stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

Note card sporting a doe and her fawn.

The last blasts of summer are upon us. The doe and her fawn in the Stampin’ Up! stamp set, In the Meadow, remind me that the speckled fawns will not be seen much longer as they are rapidly growing up.

After stamping the doe and fawn with Basic Blank ink, I used an aqua painter to color the pair with Tip Top Taupe. Old Olive was used for the grassy ground cover.

To add a bit of pizazz to the interior white panel, I stamped the clump of grass and flowers in Mint Macaron (from the same stamp set, In the Meadow).
