Just Add Ink #431 | Sketch Challenge

Hello crafters and stamping friends! Welcome to the new challenge that we have for you over at Just Add Ink #431. We have a fabulous sketch, suggested by DT member Tina. It's a pretty straight forward sketch and really you are only limited by your imagination.
I bought the Dashing Deer Bundle, from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue, a few weeks ago and have been wanting to create with it for a little bit now and this weeks sketch was the perfect opportunity. I've gone with a metallic and rustic look for today's card. Using the Wood Textures DSP for the base of the card with Early Espresso, Merry Merlot, Gray Granite and Copper for the colour combo. Its a gorgeous deep, rich and luxe colour combo.

I cut out the piece of Wood Textures DSP, sponged Early Espresso Ink around the edges and then layered it on Early Espresso cardstock.  Over the Wood Textures I've used a strip of the Joyous Noel DSP. The Merry Merlot colour goes fantastically with the Early Espresso colour. I'm really loving this colour combo.

I've layered a piece of Vellum over the Joyous Noel strip, that I die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then embossed with the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder. Over the Vellum is another DSP pattern from the Joyous Noel DSP.  The deer pattern from the DSP is a good match to the Dashing Deer Bundle, don't you think?

For the deer, I've gone with a tone on tone look by using Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder on Copper Foil Sheets and then this Copper picks up the Copper Foil in the DSP patterns. How beautiful are the swirly antlers on the deer? Really gives a elegance and Christmas feel to the deer. 

While I changed up some of the elements of the sketch I really love all the layers and elements that brought this card together and anything with beautiful metallic elements and you've got me.
