This is another holiday card. I love this stamp set from Mama Elephant! The deer that come with this set make my heart happy. I have a soft spot for deer. Anyways... I made the background using distress inks - black soot, faded jeans, peacock feathers & spun sugar blended in to create the purple. I sprinkled the paper with some water to create this effect. See this post by Jennifer Mcguire for how to do this! The banner was heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
