MFT Weekly Stamp Club - Take A Hike
For the background most layer (minty green) I used the elements that come with the Fred Bear - Take A Hike stamp set. I inked them with my Ranger Ink Perfect Medium and then coated them with a dark green Perfect Pearls powder using a very fluffy paintbrush. It's hard to tell in the photo but in person there is a fabulous shine to all of those background elements.
Fred Bear - Take A Hike. I must say, that I was in a super girly mood reaching for my MME - Fine and Dandy Girl paper pack so for my intents and purposes I have changed Fred into a girl!! I colored her fur (all with my Copics) and added a bit of pink to her nose and cheeks as well as giving her a few pink freckles. I paper pieced her boots using some of the pink polka dotted paper from the MME pack and then coating them with Glossy Accents. Who says hiking boots can't be patent leather?!! (wink!) I also added a bit of Glossy Accents to her tiny hiking companion...the super sweet snail.
Dizzy Doily Duo (the larger of the two) to back my main image.
I used the scraps from the front of my card to create the interior. I used a sentiment from the newly released Finishing Flourishes. I inked it in Hero Arts Latte Chalk Ink for a bit of a difference from my standard black ink.
