I am playing along with The Card Concept challenge! I absolutely love the "Forest Friends" theme this week. It gave me the perfect opportunity to use two of my favorite stamp sets from SugarPea Designs. I also want to enter my card to the Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge. The theme is "show us your smile"! These little critters are so happy to be friends. I think their smiles are precious!
My base card is white. (5 1/2 X 4 1/4) The next layer is Basic Black. (5 1/4 X 4) I used watercolor paper (5 X 3 3/4) for the top layer. I used Tim Holtz Distress inks and a blending tool to create the night scene. The star stamp is from Mama Elephant-Tiny Heroes. I stamped the stars with Versa Fine ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. The sentiment is stamped in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Two hillside borders were cut with the Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders on watercolor paper. Distress inks were blended on them. They were adhered with foam tape. The little squirrel and fox are from the stamp sets Foxy Friends and Nuts About You from SugarPea Designs. A variety of Copic Markers were used and then I fussy cut them and adhered them with foam tape.
Wink of Stella was added in spots on the little critters to make them shine.
My style for the challenge is clean and layered. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. I love to hear from you!
Wishing you a fantastic weekend!
