Hello Friend - New Lawn Fawn Stamps

I just love inking up a new set of stamps for the first time and when I got this lovely Critters in the Forest stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I did just that.....although, the very first images I colored from this set will be shared later on another project, I inked up the cute little owl, log, and dragonfly again last night to use on this card for the Lawnscaping Challenge #16 One Layer Magic and CAS-ual Fridays CFC16 - Embossing.  This is my first time entering these two challenges, although, I have been watching them for a little while.  ;)

The images are colored with Copic markers and the sentiment is from SRM Stickers.  I embossed the bottom of the card with my cuttlebug and then painted over it with some green acrylic paint.  After it was dry, I sanded the embossed area for the fun polka dotted look.  For the dragonfly, I added some glitter to the wings and drawn stitches behind it.  For the owl, I added some fun wiggle eyes.  I finished off the card by adding some hemp twine and a button.

Here are the two challenges for this card:

Have a great day and thanks for your lovely comments....they make my day!!
