The sun has been shining and it has been really beautiful outside the last few days, little chilly but beautiful. And this made me want to find a little nature to color! Whimsy Stamps "Snail and Butterfly Toadstool" is just perfect! illustrated by Krista Heij-Barber.
Normally I would have done this is pastel or really springy colors, but this time I decided to go a little country fall with the colors. All the papers are from BoBunny's Juliet collection. Love the richness of these papers. And when I saw those polka dots... well had to be! I used a Kraft card stock for the base and then colored up the image with my Copics (colors below). I sewed all the papers down with straight and zig zag stitches after inking all the edges with Ranger's Distress Ink.
For some added outdoor embellishment I punched out a Martha Stewart Fence and grass border for the bottom. A very old mulberry flower and then the sentient "Just A Note" from the Simply Stitched Circles Sentiment Collection. Now you must see all the great sentiments with this set and if you hurry... it is on sale right now!!
