Exploring forest on four paws

Hi, Janja here!

Today I share with you another card created with "In the forest" dies. These are really great dies, and can be used for many occasions.
For the main image I chose a curious puppy, who went alone exploring the forest.


For the card we need:
- white card base: 4.3 x 5.5" (11 x 14 cm), folded
- light gray paper: 4 x 5.2" (10,2 x 13,3 cm)
- colored cardstock
- Distress ink: Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Brushed Corduroy, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Black Soot
- Distress marker: Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
- Perfect pearls powder
- white color

Cut out puppy with die - forest peekers, beaver & dog. Shadow all pieces with distress inks and compose a puppy.


We do the same with the die - tree stump & log for peekers. Use brown cardstock, shadow it with distress inks and draw darker spots with a marker.
From green cardstock cut fern and grass. Use mushrooms & greenery die.
Now we need a snail and cute mouse. Cut out both with the forest critters die.


I did not really like selected gray paper, so I refreshed it.


Add a few drops of green and yellow ink in a mini mister together with perfect pearls powder for silky shine and water.
Shake it up well, and sprinkle the background.


When all the pieces are assembled and attached to the background, apply a white color with a sponge.


Completed card. 


That’s all for today. Thank you for coming over and have a great day.
