Walk in the Woods


This is Anja again. My brother is finally doing better and we hope he'll be home in the next few days. We have a beautiful sunny Sunday here in Slovenia. Perfect for a nice walk in the woods. Like this fox I made for today's post.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Fox & Bird, Birch Trees, Rustic Sign & Trees, Snowy Tree),
- Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Pine Needles, Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain),
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- craft paper for background (15x14,8 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- paper cutter,
- white pigment ink,
- white pen,
- black brush pen,
- black liner pen,
- paper scissors,
- paper glue.

First I cut the card base. I cut the front for 6 cm. The inside of the card base was a little lighter, so I decided to cut another background (15x 14,8 cm) that's the same color as the outside of the card base. I used white pigment ink to add a bit of mist to the sky. I glued the background inside.

Then I used the dies and cut and colored all the pieces. I cut two sets of birch trees.

I colored the black parts with the black brush pen.

First I glued the birch trees on the card base. I cut two identical stripes of white card stock for the ground.  First is 9 cm long, the second is 14,8 cm long.

When I had the background finished, I added the remaining trees and animals. And this is the final result.

Have a nice Sunday and we'll see each other in a week.

You've created a wonderful little winter scene with your fox and birch trees, Anja. I like the way you cut the front piece back to allow the trees on the inside to be part of the front of the card. Well done!
