Introducing {Forest Critters}!

ETA: I have just been informed that the set is called {Forest Critters} and not {Forest Friends} so I have changed it on the blog........fired for!

It's time for
Little Paper Shop to release some new stamp sets!! YAY! These sets will be available on Tuesday April 21st so stay tuned to see all the sneak peeks!

This peek is all about nature and is called {Forest Critters}, a super sweet set consisting of trees and little animals and toadstools!

I went paper piece crazy today and paper pieced the trees and the owl and I tried to leave the little squirrel all alone, except that I couldn't and I had to add some fun fluff to his tail.

I stamped the owl onto some Crate Paper dp and then stamped him again and cut out his tummy and his head and popped them up. Using my copics, I did a bit of shading onto the dp, around his wings and also added some white gel pen to highlight his eyes.

The sentiment is from the set {Flyin' By}, an earlier release. The trees were stamped on some scrap paper that I had, so I'm sorry I don't know the name of it.

I still had my K & Company Wild Saffron paper out, so I used that for the background paper and that was adhered to Papertrey Ink spring moss cardstock.

You can hardly even see it, (should have used a different piece, dang it) but there is a cross piece behind the main image. I used a Martha Stewart punch (from Walmart) on the bottom of that and then added two glass gems from K & Company to the side.

Make sure you take a toot over to the other girls blogs (on my side panel) to check out their designs with this set and also to Jessica Rone our guest designer for April, May and June!! Isn't she a busy girl??!! Aren't we lucky??!!
