Stamp Review Crew: Life in the Forest

SRC-Life-in-the-Forest-bannIs this not the cutest blog post header?  I must give a shout-out to Stamp Review Crew leader Tanya Boser for both this design and her amazing ability to keep us all organized and on task.

Did you come from Nancy’s blog, iguanastamp?  Hooray!  If you’re lost, click the post header to get to a list of participants.  Meanwhile, enjoy my solo effort here before moving on.

It wasn’t too long ago that I participated in another blog hop using Life in the Forest.  (You can find that hop here.)  So I really struggled to come up with something unseen and different.  Now I wouldn’t make multiples of this card — or even another one with this intricate paper piecing, LOL! — but this simple card ended up being just the kind of design I was wanting.

Don’t forget the little trick of outlining an image with a slight smudge of light ink to make it whiter and appear to be popped off the paper.

Debra Burgin Hello you foxStamps:  Life in the Forest (p. 171), Regarding Dahlias (p. 126), Dotty Angles (p. 98)

Ink/Color:  Smoky Slate, Memento (coming soon), Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker and Blender Pen

Paper:  Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack

Not sure which Silver Fox in my circle of acquaintances might get this card — would you have someone in mind?

Thanks for spending just a minute here!  Enjoy your next stop, Escape2Stamp, and Adriana’s creativity!
