Woodland Friends

In keeping with the Woodland Critters theme we have a couple of "nutty" friends here. Do you see the new A Muse paper?? There are, in fact, two new papers here - the background paper is Apricot and the woodgrain is the new Birch color! I was trying to think of a new way to use the woodgrain paper and decided to make a park bench. (You did get that that was a bench, right?!) Do you know how to mirror a stamp like I did with the two squirrels? All you need to do is stamp your image onto a solid stamp (the big block background stamp is perfect for this) and then onto your paper. Use the remaining ink on the squirrel stamp to create the other little critter. Fun, huh? Be sure and check to see what the other Muses did with the new paper!
Stamps - A Muse 2-3099C Squirrel, 9-8233B Hi friend, 3-5019G Big Block
Ink - Momento Dye ink in Tuxedo Black
Paper - A Muse Apricot, Fern, Chiffon Green and Birch Woodgrain

Beautiful job with the mirror stamping- I seem to have difficulties keeping a good dark image with the mirrored image! Love, love your fence! Great card!

great idea with the woodgrain paper! And I really need to give the mirror stamping a try. I just don't ever remember to do that!
