Okay, this is a looooooong post — because I couldn’t stop making cards with the new Hero Arts Woodland Creatures set! Some of these are in the 2009 Catalog and some aren’t. This one isn’t:
And neither is this skunk — I think that’s one of my faves (even tho it is ‘shroomless, ha!)
The next three are in — love the squirrel!
And this one isn’t in the catalog
But this one is! LOVE the raccoon…this guy has been our “sneak peek mascot” — thought the little mask was somehow appropriate!
If you don’t have a catalog yet, you can see them all together here in the sneak peek on the Hero Arts blog.
Oh and! Would anyone be interested in seeing a video on how I color the critters? I just use colored pencils — no gamsol or anything like that — gamsol is odorless mineral spirits, and I read bad things about it — seems like nasty stuff both for humans + the environment. Leave a comment and let me know if you’d like to see a video!
One last thing — I updated the slideshow over there in the sidebar with some of the cards I did — still digging through photos, more soon!
Supplies: All stamps from the Hero Arts Woodland Creatures set (page 16 of the 2009 Catalog). Buttons + notecards also by Hero. Ribbons, twine from my stash. Cuttlebug embossing folders. Prismacolor pencils.
