Craft A Scene - Forest Animals

I can't believe that we are nearly half way through the year, it's flown by so far. As it's the beginning of a new month, it's time for a new challenge at Craft A Scene, and this month we are asking that you make a scene using Forest Animals from the area/country you live in. I've made this card using this lovely stamp of a Badger from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew collection, the trees and grasses are from Stampscapes. I started by stamping and masking the Badger, then I stamped the trees and masked them. Using soft brushes and Adirondack ink pads I graduated the colours through from green, yellows to blues, then removed the masks. I then added a some dark gray promarkers to the Badger just to deepen the colour of the black in his coat. The grasses were stamped using peeled paint distress ink, and I added a little brown promarker as shadow under the badger. Finally I've added a little bio on the European Badger. I know that these are in our area, as very early one morning when returning home after a trip out, one walk across the road in front of our car, I'm glad to say we were not going very fast and we were able to get a good look at him.



Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  4. Some clever masking and colouring here. I'm afraid badgers are unpopular with me because they have been digging up my lawn and using it as a toilet!! Mowing is becoming a dangerous occupation trying to avoid the 'presents' they leave and deep craters which I have to be careful not to trip into.
