I was thrilled to see these two challenges. In fact, I think they are my only technique! Maybe I could post to them all year long. Thanks for getting me motivated again. This card was done for my son's birthday. As an avid hunter he has not had much luck this year. The deer was colored with copics and enhanced with pencil. This image was a little fussy to color but so fun. Eyelets were added and strung with twine. Thanks for looking!

OMG! Such a beautiful card. I had to look twice to see how you colored the deer. It is amazing. The muted colors, layout and all the added details all work so well together. I love it. Happy birthday to your son.
