My Deer - Sparks Challenge Round Two

I'm breaking new ground with this post. I'm pretty sure it's the first time I've entered any challenge more than once. Anyway here is another take on the Designer Draft Challenge over at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge this week. Since I don't expect to be sending another box to OWH before the October 31st Christmas deadline I'm moving on to some love/winter combos and thought this could be a fun one that might work for a male or female. Hey, it's got wood and deer, both masculine right? :)

I actually dug out my very old mirror image stamp. I'm not even sure if that's what you'd call it. Do you have one? Do you ever use it any more? For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about... it's basically just a plain piece of rubber on a wooden block. You can stamp an image onto it and then stamp the image on your paper to get a mirror copy. I think it was one of the first things I bought many, many years ago after seeing the demo at an SU party awed everyone with how it worked. Okay, I admit back then it took less to impress and amaze me but it IS pretty cool. LOL! It takes a few tries and the results aren't always great but if you're coloring the image like I did here you generally don't notice and a fine point sharpie can help you patch up any not so solid lines or spots.

Happy Crafting!

I have one of those mirror image stamps, and it too is ancient. Wonder where I put it? Paula, these deer look fabulous on the card. I like how they are two different shades. I can't tell which one is the original.Well done!

This is such a cute card, Paula. I've never heard of a mirror image stamp. But however you did it, it looks great! Love the wood background too.
