I'm loving the fashion for forest creatures in crafting at the moment, but I've not bought any of the lovely new stamps that are around - there are so many to choose from that I'm simply spoiled for choice.
However I have this cute faun stamp - it reminds me of Bambi - that has been in my stash for years. And the owl and branch stamps which were a magazine freebie about a year ago. So I'm not entirely deprived of forest creatures.
For this card, I used the Rubberstamp Tapestry set that I took out of retirement a few days ago for Mark's anniversary card to create a carpet of fallen leaves at the bottom of the card. I stamped the bough and the owl on it. There was a very good reason for stamping the owl, even though I was going to add a separately stamped image of it - those little legs looked so fragile that I was afraid I would accidentally cut them off, so I stamped it first just to make sure I had at least one pair showing. (I often do the same with butterfly antennae)
The fawn, owl and toadstools were stamped on cream card and cut out - they are raised slightly above the background card although it doesn't really show on the photo.
