I wanted to use all of the images from this set on one card. I got them all but the lantern! I had stamped the full moose and cut off his head to pop it up. I put all the pieces aside and when I went back the head was on the tent. I thought, A Ha! and that's how the moose is in the tent!

The background is sponged. The images were all stamped in black and colored with markers. They were cut out and placed on the background. No masking for this one!


The fern from Marsh Silhouettes is my new favorite stamp. I stamped it around the focal panel in several different green inks. I stamped it around the punched sentiment too.



Good Luck on the hop!
