Super cute card. And thanks for the detailed description of how you did this. I'm glad Daria linked it to her WSW12 Birds of a feather card, so I got to see it.
I'm so glad I saw this. I just bought the HA stamp, and I love what you've done with it. The coloration on the trees is wonderful, and I love the animals hiding here and there.
Plus it will work for Daniel's Scavenger Hunt (the fox)!
Another great card with birch trees! Your trees are fantastic. So cute to see the little animals too.
Anna-Karin thanks for sharing the details on making the fabulous birch trees...they certainly would blend into my forest! The animals in the forest are fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing!
Love those cute animals hiding behind those pretty birch trees! Very nice, Anna-Karin.

Another card for the Hero Arts March challenge (birthday theme, ‘grattis’ means ‘congratulations’ in Swedish). When I made my Birch forest card a few days ago, I also wanted to try to place some animal hiding among the tree trunks. I used the same technique for the trees (inspired by a card by Stampersuzz). The tree trunk stamp was inked with Versamark and then applied a Memento London Fog marker on the edges of the trunks. The trees were then clear embossed on glossy cardstock and I used the same marker to add colour to the trees. I masked the trees and stamped the animals. Then I masked the animals and coloured the background with shades of green dye ink. I used a negative mask, Distress ink and Fantastix to colour the animals. The grass was stamped with Stazon and the flowers added with a gel pen. TFL!!
