More Father's day cards, done using Stampin' Up's retired "Noble Deer" set. I'm still pulling out the oldie but goodie sets! It's so awesome to use new products on old sets because they turn out totally different from when I used to putz around with them as a Stampin Up demo. I remember always watercoloring these deer with Stampin Up ink and an aqua pen. Copic markers have opened up such a different stamping world for me! I decided to turn these into "Thinking of you" cards, so they can be used either for Father's day or all-occasion.
For the images on these cards, the Copic colors I used are: "Cool Shadow"(BG10) for outlining the clouds and the deer, "Light Camel" (E55) for the deer, "Spring Dim Green (G82), Pale Olive (YG95) and Spanish Olive (YG97) for the layers of grass. Hint: go over the shaded lines on the deer bodies multiple times with the same marker color to create subtle shading.
I also stamped the pine tree and pine cone stamp image under the "Thinking of you" sentiment.
