Whenever I am feeling a little down, I reach for my Purple Onion Designs stamps. There is just something about the sweet expressions on all the critters illustrated by Stacey Yacula (@staceyyacula) that make me smile.
One of my favorite images is Cedar (fox) and after stamping him onto Copic friendly cardstock, I colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out. To give him a wooded background I blended pinefeather and soft stone ink onto a stitched panel using the Hero Arts Birch Trees Stencil. After attaching Birch to the panel using foam dimensionals, I added a sentiment from the Holiday Blurbs set stamped with pinefeather ink. I used the Picket Fence Studios String of Lights die to cut from white cardstock and and added carribean ocean Nuvo drops to represent the lights, attaching to the trees for a festive feel in the forest.
