My nephew just got back from taking his family to Tennessee for their vacation, so I decided to do a little scene that might remind him of that trip for his Birthday card.
I went about die cutting the Poppystamps Thicket frame from a piece of glossy paper that I applied Adirondack Alcohol inks in Ginger, Sunset Orange and Lettuce.
I decided to use the same applicator and just add a bit more Lettuce alcohol ink to it onto another glossy paper to make the grassy hills, using the Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes dies. I was able to cut out both hills with one piece by having the cutting edge of the dies facing each other, the only part wasted was that thin strip in the middle.
I then cut out two Frantic Stamper Small Oregon fir dies out of green cardstock, colored the trunks with brown marker and then did a little bit of shading with some Pealed Paint Distress ink. I also cut the Poppystamps Mama and baby bear dies. Here is a close up before adding the thicket frame with foam tape for dimension. As you can see in this picture I had done a little shading on craft cardstock for the bears, but as you can see in the final picture I ended up cutting the bears out of all brown cardstock, I think it helped them jump out a little more from the scene.
The sentiment is from Penny Black -- Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set.
The following are pictures of the dies I used with the links above in the description.
