Oh deer I'm falling! Phindy's Place Challenge #75 - Autumn

 It's Friday and time for a new Phindy's Place Challenge, this week along with many other blogs our challenge is Autumn/Fall.  In the Field is an image I've not used before, I really like it now I've coloured it up and I can see some snowy, Christmas deer coming up too:).  I printed the image twice, colouring with Copics and lots of Distress Inks, then decoupaging my deer so they stand proud of the image.  If you're wondering about the very dramatic dark sky, it was first coloured with blue DI and then I saw it didn't work with any of the autumn colours I wanted to use for DP:).  I used my blender pen to get the dappling on the deer's backs, really like the effect.  The card is based on this week's Sketch & Stash, though I have left off the sentiment for now and in fact have no room for it in the right place as I added a load of punched leaves across the bottom:).
My card is for the following challenges:
