I've been Pinspired! #27

Here is the picture that is to be used for inspiration for this week's challenge over at {PIN}spirational Challenges

While the Oldie But A Goodie challenge theme is Inspired by a Song.

I decided to combine the two challenges,  because the picture reminded me of a cute deer stamp I won from a craft magazine about three years ago and have never used. And because I tend to get "ear-worms" - songs stuck in my head - and for the last few days it has been the old English folk song

The Keeper did a-shooting go,
And under his cloak he carried a bow,
All for to shoot at a merry little doe,
Among the leaves so green-o.

Well, my leaves aren't green, as I used the Kaleidacolour Autumn Leaves pad for them. But my merry little doe is well and truly among them! The stamps I used for the leaves are two of my old favourites, bought from Just For Fun in the States a few years back. Each stamp is double sided - the solid side stamps the main leaf, then you use a stamp positioner along with the other side of the stamp to add the veins. This time I embossed the veins in gold to make them stand out.


  1. Very pretty. Love the colors for your leaves and the gold embossing. Fabulous job coloring your deer. Love the corner flourishes also. Thanks for joining us at {Pin}spirational Challenge.
