Tall Card

Apparently tall cards have come into favour so it is just as well I have a supply of most sizes of card blank including these.  Decided to have a little play with some inking and stamping for this latest Christmas card - quite enjoyed it although it does take a bit of time to get the ink off my fingers afterwards..  The moon was suggested by masking off the area; tall trees a stamp which I've had for many years and may no longer be available. First and second generation stamping here. The ground was formed with torn paper masks and the deer stamps I've also had a while.  Think I may follow this up with some more inky play to gather a few interesting backgrounds together.
