Life in the Forest

I was SUPER excited to work on my card for this month's Technique Time Tuesday challenge.  The challenge is to make a Side Step card, so the possibilities are endless!  Make sure you hop on over to the challenge blog for a wonderful tutorial and to check out all of the fabulous creations that our design team has come up with.

I knew right away that I wanted to make a little forest scene, so I stamped a bunch of images on Watercolor Paper and started using my ink pads and blender pens to color them in. I had a ball cutting everything out and assembling the pieces together. I know some people (lots of my customers, to name a few! lol) HATE fussy cutting, but I happen to love it, so this was a fun project for me. I hope you enjoy it too!
