Enjoy Nature

 Hello readers, Alicia posting today.  I finally decided to dip my toes into the slimline popularity.  I chose a couple of primary die sets to begin.  I purchased Tutti Designs Slimline Stitched Rectangles and Karen Burniston Long Nature EdgesI felt they would definitely get me started with some great slimline edges.  I have used both here along with some Karen Burniston Critters.  


I love creating the Karen Burniston Critters, they are so much fun and most are a lot easier than they look.  The squirrel below is only two pieces.  I used a pen and the die to ink the ears and face.  I inked the edges with a brown ink and added the tiny acorn.  The fox is a few more pieces. Most of the details are highlighted with ink as well.  I did cut an extra body to get the white pieces for the inside of the ears.  You could just put white paper behind but I felt the inlaid die cut is a more finished look.  

The beauty of the butterfly comes from the paper.  I used the same collection for the background papers and the butterfly.  It is a very old collection from We R.


The turkey has a few more details.  I cut the red face piece from white paper and colored it red.  I did go the extra mile to create the neck from a white cut of the feathers detail.  I keep it in my stash and just cut another "loop" off every time I make another turkey.


I did not get a great pic of the raccoon.  I think I have an overload of pics already so please forgive me.  Here is one last look at my card.
