Magical Forest Inspiration

Be still my forest loving heart! This month's Hero Arts kit is so very sweet - and I'm back with the full reveal. The little peeking animals are so cute with the layering woodland die - I can't stand it!

I ink blended the base of the card, and then added a black layer before doing the other layers in white - it gives it that telescopic feel. I colored the little fox with one OLO marker and then added colored pencil shading. This whole thing is so quick it's crazy.

Here's what the full kit looks like:

THESE ADD-ONS THOUGH. LOOK at this stencil! OMG. I have a video on how I foiled this coming out on Wednesdy. This is SO cute I can't stand it.

You know how I am about symmetrical background stamps, and there's a new one this month - this magical circle bold print. I masked half my card and stamped it with on-stamp ink blending - but with a more rustic, distressed technique - you can see a video on that here. Look at the deer - the yellow parts are a yellow lacquer. The stamp set has images that are like the ones in the stencil - adorable. And look at the die cut sentiments!

Here are all the add-ons - look at all this goodness!! The letterpress!

So back to yesterday's little sneak - this little peeking bear stole my heart. I think every blog post I've done for a month has had a bear in it - don't know what's up with that. But I love bears!
