It has been a consistent thing for me the past few weeks to have a cart packed full of all the new goodies that have been coming into the store. I place my order one day and then the next day I spot something else I have 'have to' have! It's a perpetual cycle. You can find all the new products by clicking HERE!
When I happened across this Elizabeth Crafts Woodland Pals stamp set and dies, it immediately went into my cart! I love the design of these characters. They seem almost a little like folk-art to me!
I started by coloring the images with markers and arranging them into a scene. The trees in this set have only a few leaves on them and I wanted them to be full so I used the My Favorite Things Trees in the Forest dies to create a fuller tree top. I also used the MFT Grassy Fields die for the forest floor. Both the trees and the grass are inked with Distress Ink in Iced Spruce. I used the Clarity Stencil Brushes to get a nice, soft wash of color.
For the background, I used the Echo Park Quilted Stitch Stencil inked with Distress Ink in Fossilized Amber to create what could either be a sun or a moon!
I assembled my scene, popping up one of the trees and the fox with Foam Mounting Tape for a little dimension. I added a sentiment from MFT's Essential Sentiments with Versafine Black ink and my car was done!
