Winnie&Walter and OCC CAS4

The card below combines a technique shared during the curent Online Card Class, Clean and simple 4 (day 3), with 2 of the challenges over at the Winnie&Walter blog in honour of their first birthday.

I stamped a background using the wood ring stamp from the Winter Woodland set by W&W in HA Unicorn white pigment ink. After the ink had dried, I stamped over it using the tree from the same stamp set and two shades of green ink (Memento - Pistachio and Olive grove). At this point I was a little disappointed because the white pattern did not show up the way I had envisioned. But I decided to continue with what I had and stamped the sentiment in Memento Elderberry. I did not want to stamp the sentiment in either black or brown and when I was thinking about any other options, my eye fell on this dark purple colour, which was still in its original packaging. But boy, do I love this colour! I decided I needed something else to bring the card together and grabbed the deer stamp from the same stamp set and stamped it in the same elderberry ink. And then the magic happened... I love how the wood rings show up in the stamped deer image. After that, I trimmed the sides of my stamped panel and adhered it to my base card using foam tape, but not before I swiped my elderberry ink pad along the edge of the card.
