Hey friends, it’s Christy here to talk about my card for our new Fall Challenge! If you missed the announcement post with all the details about how to enter, you can find it here.

Hello friends, it’s Christy here with another sweet card using our Big Hugs Woodland stamp set. I just love these cuddling critters! Since I’d already created a card featuring the larger animal cluster, today I wanted to focus on the other two. I also brought in a few scene building accessory images from Moose and Friends and the bird from Carried Away. I colored them all with my Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. To set the scene, I created a simple watercolor background. I watered down Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink and painted that on...
