* Timber! *

Written on Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

   Hey, y’all! It’s release week again at Craftin’ Desert Divas! Today, we’re releasing Timber & Fall Border dies. This IS my favorite set from this release! I just L-O-V-E, double puffy heart, it!

   I colored up my images using Copics (listed below). I love how these came out! I wanted this to be a shaker card at first, but then I was afraid the sequins would take away from the scene! For the background, I sprayed a lightened coat of B52 with my airbrush system. Then I die cut the tree line from the new “Fall Border” dies out of kraft cardstock.
I did a super simple dotting technique to get my texture on the trees. I made sure to go under my images with a dark shade that I used for my ground to make a shadow for my images. This way they don’t look like they’re floating in space.

   These little guys are my two favorite images from this set. I just love how cute they are!

To stack my scene, I cut out 5 of the middle rectangle frame from the Inside Scalloped Rectangles die set. I adhered the ground part of the tree line to the base of the card, but mounted the tree tops up on a small piece of foam tape to give it dimension. The two little critters were just adhered using Multi Medium in Matte.

   Thanks for stopping by and be sure to grab this set in the release when it becomes available on September 8 at 1500 EST. Mark your calendars!
