Happy Friday crafty friends! I haven't participated in a challenge in a while, so I decided I absolutely needed to play along with the Happy Little Critters Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! I mean, who doesn't love a Critter challenge!
I had such fun making this winter birthday scene! I chose the Sweet Critter Concert set because I love it and I have not had the chance to ink it up yet, eek! I stamped all of the Critter images and accessories on a piece of Neena 80lbs cardstock and colored them in with a series of Copic Sketch markers. I used the accompanying dies and set them aside to work on my background.
I took a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock cut to A2 size and Ink blended Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Ink on the panel once that was complete I took my favourite Simon Says Stamp Star background stencil and I wanted gold embossing paste by alas, mine had dried out. So I took my clear glitter embossing paste and added some Distress Paint to it to make my own, I am super happy with the result.
I put that aside to dry and die cut my Birch Trees from the Lawn Fawn White Woodgrain cardstock and added some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to give shading and dimension. I also die cut a piece of the Lawn Fawn glitter paper with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die (as was the background panel) and die cut either side with the opposing Stitched Hillside Border dies.
Once my background had dried I embossed my sentiment on the background panel and glued my trees. I added my "snow banks" and finally placed my critters on the panel. To finish off, I added my music notes to the scene! Go check out the fun challenge!
