Foster Fawn & friends

Happy Thursday everyone, fancy crafty shopping? Yes? well there's some fab new rubber images released today over at Little Miss Muffet to get your inky fingers on ;)
The collection, Forest Friends, is perfect for this time of year and includes the most adorable little characters, Rachel, Sabina, Stuart, Trevor, Orlando, Quella, Rosa, and here's Foster Fawn...

SO sweet eh? and is a dream to colour too ;)
If you've seen the new release, you may notice that I have also used butterfly, dragonfly and mushroom images too to create the whole scene for this card.
I started by positioning all the images to where I wanted them, then sponged in the sky. Using the images again to lay on top, coloured with promarkers. Foster got extra layers which I adhered together with glue (rather than use foam pads) for more subtle layering...

I created faux stitching with a paper pricking tool and then used a thin marker dragged over the holes.
I've used that gorgeous green floral paper again that I don't know the name of ;)  However, the spotty piece I do know, it's by Dovecraft.

 UPDATE: Thanks to Faye, I now know that the green paper is by Fancy Pants, from the Beach Babe collection, this sheet is called 'sand dollar'... Thank you Faye! xx
The scalloped border is from a cArt-Us die. I added a few gems for a touch of sparkle.
Finally, I added the sentiment which is actually a close match for my deer card, and was found on a small sheet of sentiments that were free with a craft mag.
You're going to love this collection of cuties. You can also buy Zabel, she had been previously available as a digi but can now be found in rubber instead :)
You can see more examples of Foster, Rachel and the gang by popping over to the LMM challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by the other Little Misses.
By the way, there's still time to enter our current challenge of paper piecing too ;)
Happy crafting!
