CDS Sneak Peek - Woodland Critters


It's the very last day for April Sneak Peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps and I have the totally cute Woodland Critters set. I wanted to create a sweet little "scene" so I hand drew the tree stump, coloured it and then traced the lines with my glue pen and added clear embossing powder. I heat set it so that it looked the same way the the fox did.




The fox has been paper tole'd and the grass was cut out with my craft knife in 3 different shades of papers to add the look of dimension. Laurie challenged use to use one larger letter on our card so I tried my hand at mixing the Woodland Critter's Foxy sentiment with the Upper Case "F" from the Monogram set. I added some paper piercing to balance the card up and for some more texture :)
