We reached the final day of the June release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs, and as always the cutest is saved for last! I am in love with the Woodland critter series, and now our favourite wildlings are going on a picnic!
For my first card I created a forest scene using Bristol Smooth cardstock and Distress Oxide inks. For the grass I used Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and a bit of Lucky Clover to add contrast. I cut it with the Land Border dies. I used the same colours for the tree crowns, just more of the dark colours and cut that with a Sky border die.
For the trees I used the Forest scene builder and Antique linen/Walnut stain Distress Oxides.
The sunny background is made with Squeezed Lemonade and I Sponged Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink through the Sunscape stencil. Before removing it I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.
I stamped and coloured all images with Copics and cut them ou with their coordinating dies. I popped them up on the scene using 3D foam squares.
I stamped a sentiment from the set in black in between two trees, directly on the background. I also stamped a couple of ants on the grass and made them pop with a black glaze pen. I added some white gel pen highlights and some dots with my clear sparkle pen for more interest.
For my second card I had to use the cute bear holding the watermelon on its own, I think he deserves full attention.
I kept this card very simple, just added some stitching texture to a piece of kraft cardstock using a Reverse Confetti die, cut a strip of green gingham paper where I black heat embossed some ants and a sentiment.
I popped up my favourite bear with 3D foam squares and matted the strip with a green cardstock before adhering it to the card.
A drop of glossy accents on the nose and a black glaze pen on the seeds finished this card off.
