Embossing Paste Buck

In case some of you do not subscribe to my other blog, I thought I should add these here as well.  I had a wonderful time today with my monthly stamping ladies, Hi, Girls!  We made lots of fun stuff.  This card was a collaboration between myself and Beverly Hubbard (very talented lady)  She had done one and we liked the buck so much, we wanted to try one for ourselves.  The buck is a DreamWeaver stencil and he is done with embossing paste.  I have two versions, one is an end of summer look

the second is a winter look
The scenic elements are all Sutter Stamps, stamped with Marvy black ink onto glossy card stock.  The background colors were added with a Colorbox Stylus.  For the Summer scene I used Adirondack Willow and Lettuce for the grass, Cloudy Blue for the sky and a bit of Sandal on the trees.  I had slight technical difficulty with the paste and splobbed some below the buck.  So I hid it with Flower Soft.  I colored the buck with a watercolor brush and USArtQuest Vintage MicaColor Paint.  It has a great shimmer to it.  For the Winter scene, I added just a hint of Aqua to the background and Sandal to the trees.  The buck is colored the same way, I just made the colors deeper.  Finished size is 4 5/8 x 6 3/8 inches.

I have never seen USArtQuest Vintage MicaColor Paint. Is this new and does anyone carry it locally? Been a while since I did anything with my pastes. I will have to dig them out this winter and play. I like the winter card best, not because I like snow or cold but it reminded me of Rudolph and watching it with my dad, Yukon Cornelius. Thanks for the nostalgia.
