Double Deer

This card is for Stamptoberfest Double Take and Patterned Paper challenges, and for the Hero Arts October challenge (Holiday card theme). The Double Take challenge is to stamp an image on tissue paper, turn the paper around and stamp it again to get a mirror image. Anne gives a good description of the technique here. The Patterned Paper challenge is to use at least three patterned papers. Here's my card:

I used this fun reindeer stamp and stamped it six times on tissue paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used gel medium to glue the tissue paper to patterned papers, cut the bodies and jerseys out and then paper pieced the deer on the green patterned paper. Some snowflakes were stamped around them and Stickles added to the snowflakes, jerseys and noses. The background is dry embossed Core’dinations cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
