Deer under a Tree

My husband turned 30 this month and to celebrate we are having a party for him this weekend. And of course I just had to make invitations to his big bash. I wanted to make a card he would like, so I asked for his input. He wanted a deer image and of course I hadn't gotten around to ordering a deer set yet, so I just had to place an order!!

Originally I had stamped the whole tree silhouette in Garden Green, but it was ugly! My husband asked if I could make it look like fall/hunting season. So out came the markers. I coloured portions of the leaves with multiple colours. For the grass I started with Pear Pizazz, then added a few swipes of Garden Green and to finish it off I used the thinner tip of the Chocolate Chip marker to create some dimension. The deer was first stamped in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
