Forest Critters and Flowering Flourishes

Hello Everyone

I am almost ready for Christmas - but today I thought I would share a trio of projects I did a while ago - and are non-festive :) The first features the little mouse from Life in the Forest. This was a semi-CASE of a project I saw online - but can't find now to credit the original designer. (If it is you - let me know).  I loved the way she had her mice coming at different angles into a circle. I used the Hardwood background stamp - stamping in Mossy Meadow on to Old Olive cardstock.

The next card in similar colour way uses Flowering Flourishes for the stem and Flower Shop for the flowers. The flowers are coloured using Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.

And for the final one - I am back to Life in the Forest and those cute little hedgehogs. I used the reflection technique to make the second hedgehog a mirror image and did masking to layer up the trees. The trees are coloured with the Old Olive Blendabilities, the Hedgehogs are done with the Skin Tones set. I stamped the toadstools and coloured in - highlighting the spots with the White Chalk Marker. 

Here is a little close up of the colouring - the background is done with daubers.

Hope you liked today's non-holiday projects. I will be back with one more video before Christmas day - see you Tuesday!
