CardMaker Magazine and Greeting Farm Stamps Blog Hop

The CardMaker Magazine blog team had the fun opportunity to play with some Greeting Farm stamps for a blog hop.  
 I picked the Cuddly Thanks set for my card.  What can I say, I love this adorable little fox.  I started out by creating my background for this cutie.  I added Distress Stain in Mowed Lawn to a square acrylic block and "stamped" that onto a piece of watercolor paper.  You see the strong lines because this was a square acrylic block.  Next I gave it a few spritzes of water so the ink would run a bit.  
I already said this guy is adorable.  I added color to the tree stump and to the fox with Copic Markers.  That really cute sentiment is also part of the set I used.  
There is a prize to be given away for those participating in the hop. 
Next hop on over to the Greeting Farm blog to continue the hop.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
