Hello Bluebird - Thankful For You

With the holiday's quickly approaching, I have been busy working on my Christmas cards but I wanted to make one last fall inspired card before those stamps get put away until next year. I've used a mix of Hello Bluebird stamps and warm fall colors to create my scene on an A6 sized card.

I have stamped and Copic colored images from two diferent sets - Deer Friend and Fall Buddies.  There's a deer image in each of these sets and I thought they coordinate so perfectly together.  My go to Copic color combo for the main body area of deer is E42, E43, and E44.  I use the E44 sparingly for shading in small areas.  For the very light areas I've used E40 and E41.  

I've created an ink blended sky by lightly sponging on some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink around the top and sides of a Bristol Smooth card stock panel cut slightly smaller than my card base.   I used some Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink to color a circular area in the center of the background to mimic the sun.  I used Brushed Sage Distress Oxide ink and the Grassy Knoll dies to create two layers of grass for the bottom of the background panel.  I've stamped the "thankful for you" from the Autumn Script stamp set directly onto the background.  I had a bit more room for an additional sentiment so I added the "you warm my heart" which is from the Fall Buddies set.
