MFT Earth Day

hello & happy start to another week!
my awesome new MFT stamps arrived last Friday- just in time for the weekend! the WSC challenge this week was to make an Earth Day themed project! Kim's Giving Tree project is fantastic- check it out & play along with us! The brand new Sheltering Tree stamp set and digi paper collection made this super fun! i was also inspired by Mel's amazing work in her fabulous new box template-love it!

paper: kraft cardstock, sheltering tree digi paper collection, MFT banana split cardstock

inks: memento tuxedo black, CTMH stamp pads in Cocoa, Chocolate, New England Ivy

accessories: copic markers, lots of pop dots, nesties, paper piercer, TCP linen thread, buttons

this one's pretty straightforward & fun to do- i just stamped the images with colored inks onto the digi papers & cut them out.
The tree & squirrel are on the woodgrain, the owls are on the yellow checkered paper.
i cut the round card base using my nesties (overcut slightly on the edge folded card base to keep the shape together). i added copic marker to the stamped images, and used pop dots for lots of dimension. the digi papers built the background sky & ground.
a happy button sun finishes it off along with some pierced holes around the edge of the card!

here's the inside:

and a better peek at the dimension:

thanks for looking!
