I've been Pinspired! #27

Here is the picture that is to be used for inspiration for this week's challenge over at {PIN}spirational Challenges


While the Oldie But A Goodie challenge theme is Inspired by a Song.

I decided to combine the two challenges,  because the picture reminded me of a cute deer stamp I won from a craft magazine about three years ago and have never used. And because I tend to get "ear-worms" - songs stuck in my head - and for the last few days it has been the old English folk song

The Keeper did a-shooting go,
And under his cloak he carried a bow,
All for to shoot at a merry little doe,
Among the leaves so green-o.

Well, my leaves aren't green, as I used the Kaleidacolour Autumn Leaves pad for them. But my merry little doe is well and truly among them! The stamps I used for the leaves are two of my old favourites, bought from Just For Fun in the States a few years back. Each stamp is double sided - the solid side stamps the main leaf, then you use a stamp positioner along with the other side of the stamp to add the veins. This time I embossed the veins in gold to make them stand out.
