For an indoor city girl I sure have fun playing with landscape scenes. I made a “cloud” template on my Cricut and used it to make the clouds in the background with Soft Sky ink, next I stamped the trees with Garden Green and used one of the stamps from the Waterfront stamp set to create the “dirt” using Crumb Cake ink. The deer is from the Carols of Christmas Bundle and was stamped with Soft Suede (one of my all time favorites) then cut out with the coordinating die. I used a “dabber” to add Daffodil Delight behind the sun hoping to create an illusion of sun rays, and the sun & coordinating die are from the Sunshine and Rainbows Bundle. I added Wink of Stella to the sun for some sparkle.
