Joy to the Woods
Hi all stampers/crafters!! Welcome to Mrs. Lincoln's Inkin' and today's card share!!
Today's card is featuring my new Lawn Fawn stamp set that is called Joy to the Woods! It's an awesome set that has a coordinating die set. With Christmas next week, I haven't been focusing so much on Christmas cards... being that there isn't much time to make them and still get them out but i wanted to make sure that I shared this one with you before the holiday season is over:( Urg... makes me so sad to even utter those words:(
Also on today's card, for the background, i used the new Colorbox Chalk in that is going to be available in the new SU! Spring Catalog (amazing catalog by the way). I used my Star of the Show stamp set by Alley Way and the new Yellow Chalk Ink and then heat embossed it. The nice things with the chalk inks is that they are pigment inks, so they stay wet for a few minutes which allows you to heat set them!!! AWESOME!! Then i sponged my background with my Distress Ink, Evergreen Bough.
I wanted the only "color" to by on my card was the background and my fox. I wanted him to pop and really be the vocal point of the card. Therefore, i used my Cool Grey Copic marker and just feathered on the tree to give it just a hint of depth and then did the same thing under my fox. I didn't want him to just look like he was floating on the snowbank:)
Here is a closer look at the stamp/die set that i used today:
Well that is all for today my friends! Thanks so much for visiting today. Hope you swing by again soon! Until next time...
