Christmas in July

These deer would like to wish you am merry festive season. Walking in grass, but with snowflakes... that's Christmas in July for you.

I started with a tissue paper on cardstock. I sprayed blue mica spray through a stencil of tree branches. The circle was done with white embossing powder. I used three different stamps, they are by PaperArtsy, RubberDance and Inkadinkadoo.

Background was treated with mint green acrylics, the snowflakes stamped with blue, grass with green. (That is the only deviation from the color inspiration, I just could not see deer walking on sand.)

The deer are picture transfer (my new love). I painted them with acrylic.
