Little Tangles #17



I created a card for the latest Little Tangles challenge Into the Woods!  I haven't played along is such a long time, but I have so many bloggy friends on the Design Team over at Neat & Tangled I just have to play this time. Little Bear is one of my favourite Neat & Tangled stamp sets and it was also one of my first. 

The challenge this time is to use some kind of natural texture on your projects. I selected some October Afternoon Campfire paper I have been hoarding for a long time and cut a square of star gazing for my background. Then I pulled out some cork and inked the huge speech bubble up to stamp on it and then fussy cut. I stamped the other images and used Copic markers to colour them in before I fussy cut them. This project is a bit out of my comfort zone but we need to push ourselves sometimes to see what we can do.

This is just perfect. I love your cork speech bubble, and such a cute sentiment--with that little heart. I never thought to stamp on cork. Your paper is just perfect for this card. Good thing you have lots of papers to choose from.
