TAWS February Release Blog Hop!

Welome to The Alley Way Stamps February 2015 release BLOG HOP!

The TAWS DT have been sharing some fantastic creations made with the fabulous February release stamps over the last 3 days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

The full release is available to buy from The Alley Way Stamps later tonight!! Woo-hoo!

For my hop card, I used several stamps from the fantastic *NEW* Branching Out stamp set to create a cute forest sunrise scene card:


Supplies
The Alley Way Stamps: Branching Out stamp set
Memento ink: Tuxedo Black

Tim Holtz Distress ink pads: Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, Picked Raspberry, 
Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters
Copic Markers: Trees E49 E47 E44 E43, 

Fox E18 E19 E08 E15 YR16 E13 W3 W1 W9;
Toadstools E18 R27 R05 R02
Whimsy Stamps Stitched Border Trio die set
Whimsy Stamps Stitched Clouds die set

I used several different colours of distress ink pads (listed above) to create the sunrise background, blending each line of colour into the next to create secondary colours. I then created the ground by blending Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters distress inks onto 2 pieces of white card with edges cut using the wavy die from my Stitched Border Trio die set.  All the images from Branching Out were coloured with Copics, fussy-cut out, and added to the scene. I did add some glossy accents to the tops of the toadstools, but it might be a bit difficult to see in the photo.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Less is More #209: Little Ones (I have used tiny toadstools on my card, and a cute "little" fox critter)
- Cards und More #124: Animals
- Cuttlebug Mania: Wildlife
- Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
- Mod Squad Challenge: Animals

This super adorable mini set, Moosing You, is FREE when you spend $40.00 or more (after shipping) at The Alley Way Stamps store during the month of February 2015. How awesome is that?
