Cracked Glass Christmas Deer



A "deer" friend of mine sent me some new rubbah from I Brake for Stamps, and I just had to clear off my desk and play. I found this sketch over on the Sweet Stop Sketches blog, and I thought it would work pretty good with this deer image.

I colored the deer image with Copic markers and then I used a Cracked Glass technique over it. This technique comes from the Technique Junkies February 2008 issue. I paired this with some papers from a Christmas pack from Hobby Lobby and added a little bit of May Arts lace. LOVE this deer image! Thank you so much, girlie!!!

Wonderful card! Love the cracked glass on the deer image! Man, I should start Christmas cards soon, although it's hard in 90+ degree heat!
