I kind of went nuts with this particular set. I was super excited about all of the sets being released this month, but this one I had trouble putting down! First of all the image with the deer . . . I've always wanted to try one of those detailed scenic stamps but wasn't brave enough. This was so much fun to paint! With one I went with bright colors, painting the background with reinkers and other card I stamped in brown {Vintage Photo} on kraft paper and then brushed it with chalks for very light coloration.

The bunny just makes me squeal, he is too darn cute! Don't ask me how I know he's a he, just a feeling! Anyway, thanks for looking and happy hopping!
