Golden Stag

Hi Everyone,

I finally used my gold embossing paste again - before it dries out completely. This gorgeous stag stencil was given to my by my blogging friend Sandie from London Days, when I was meeting her in London, this fall. I immediately knew I would use it for Christmas cards. Here is my first one - the second one I will show you later. 

I smeared the embossing paste onto white card stock and let it dry for a few weeks..... I used a dark green pigment ink to sponge around the stag and then took a stamp set by Flora & Fauna and added the greenery. The sentiment is from the same set. I trimmed the white card base and added dark green card sock strips at the top and bottom.

This gorgeous stencil is designed by Sarah Grey from Funky Fossils Designs  and you can get this beauty in her Online shop.

Happy Stenciling!

Oooo my goodness my friend you have made another eye catching beauty. The green behind the gold embossed stags head is amazing. Surrounds the embossing paste layer to perfection.

The deer looks majestic, especially in gold and the soft green ink and the stamped greenery make a perfect background for him. Thanks for joining us at Country View Challenges this month!

He is indeed most handsome in all his gold finery, Cornelia ... what a stunning stag surrounded by that lovely lush greenery! So worth the weeks of waiting for the embossing paste to dry!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

Said it before and I'll say it again (becase i have a tendency to repeat myself)...if I saw this stag in the forest, I'd bow down to him. Think you did him up proud with the dark green background. Makes the gold embossing reach out and grab one's eyes. Fabulous card.
