I started with a piece of turquoise cardstock and blended on some Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers and Pine Needles). To achieve a glow, I applied the ink from the outside towards the center, making sure to keep this area as light as possible. For even more contrast, I added Black Soot to the outer edges.
Next, I stamped the Old Oak Background in VersaMark ink onto kraft cardstock and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used two sizes of oval dies to create a frame which I adhered with foam tape.
I colored the squirrels, leafy tree branch and mushroom with Copic markers and cut out the images with the coordinating dies. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a small strip of black cardstock. Finally, I popped everything up with foam tape and added matching enamel dots.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
