This is my last week to serve as a guest designer for the Color Throwdown challenge.  I have had such a good time. The colors this week are Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla and Soft Sky.


I love creating scenes and have gone deer and butterfly crazy lately.  I decided to make Soft Sky the main color for the frame and the sky to create a soft palette for the other colors.  I had to add a soft green for foliage to accompany the deer, tree and the bright butterflies.

I  cut the double matted frame using Spellbinder Oval dies.  I cut two pieces of the Poppy Stamps Grassland Border attaching one to the base behind the deer and one in front of them. I mounted the frame over the scene using mounting tape.

I cut the tree using green cardstock and colored the tree trunk and branches using a Tea Dye Distress Marker. I attached the tree in behind the grass allowing the branches to extend out of the framed opening. I tucked sprigs of the Martha Stewart Branch Punch along the border of the frame to soften the scene and added tiny 1/8” punched red circles formed into flowers with a tiny pointed stylus and mat. I used the Memory Box Butterfly Delights to cut red butterflies to place around the scene for added dimension and color. You can click on the photos to get a closer view.

Maybe I can make myself wait until fall to use the deer again until it’s time to create a lovely snowy Christmas scene around them. Well….maybe!

Thanks again for stopping in to see my post today.  I really appreciate all of your wonderful comments and support.
