Oh deer... Winter is Coming!

Indeed :)
I've already said farewell to Autumn and I'm fully into winter mood now :) Last 3 weeks
I was creating some winter-inspired projects and it is high time for reveal! So, here it goes: I'm sharing them with you, bit-by-bit...

This little guy (nameless - so far) was found by me a year a go or maybe more during one of winter sales. I loved the shape  - but honestly - I hated the sparkly silver colour: far too festive and baroque even for me! I took poor thing home though - with good paints, a bit of time and good set of embellishments anything is possible! (Especially if you have to hide there is an important part of the body missing ;))

As you can see painting was just the first step - as always I went a bit crazy with embellishing, this time my main focus was on Sizzix cut - outs (Brenda Walton's collection - you can learn more about this line and project here, on Sizzix blog) and my favorite Prima Mechanicals - in great company of paper roses of different sizes. I sprayed them with a mixture of Primary Element Pigments and water.
I'm really happy about the metal tag with number on deer's neck. I glued the numbers with a bit of Glossy Accents - and voila!

This project was posted on Prima blog not so long ago - together with amazing, midblowing projects of Prima DT - inspired by products from my lines - Mechanicals, Elementals and Vintage Vanity. this is the COOLEST selection of decorations EVER! You have to see them

After decorating my deer I had plenty of leftovers - looks like I'll never learn how much elements I REALLY need to finish the project...but hey, why not creating a winter greeting card in the same color palette?
Here it is - perfect for my next Sizzix blogpost, right? :)
