In the Forest

That's the challenge for this week's 20th challenge at wee Memories: to incorporate any kind of "In the Forest" things i.e. squirrels, deer, trees, birds, owls, mushrooms, frogs...  I immediately thought of Young Deer......he hasn't been used since last Christmas, and it's time to bring him out again to play.


I started with the Friend Definition for the background, then stamped this unknown tree stamp (got it at a stamp convention, there is no identification on it at all) using a combination of markers and inks on a SU label, and inked around the edges. Then I made my tiny tag using an alphabet set and finally added the heart button and the little fawn. 

Supplies:  kraft, parchment, russet cardstocks, twine, heart button, Hero Arts CG125 Friend Definition, D5234 Young Deer, CL137 Small Variety Alphabet
