Wilderness Birthday

I made this card for my Dad's birthday. He now lives overseas and doesn't get much of a chance to go hunting anymore but he always enjoyed it when he lived here. He never did shoot anything, he left that up to his buddies.
I thought he'd enjoy this scene created with the Wilderness Awaits set and the woodlands embossing folder.

It's funny how I always think I have a sufficient amount of Copic markers for the time being and then proceed to colour something new only to realize I was wrong. This happened again while working on this card. Believe it or not the only actual brown shades I currently own are the skin tone Blendabailities from SU. They are a little on the dark side and did not make the colouring very easy. Nonetheless it turned out ok.

The card was created with the same technique of stamping the inside of the embossing folder, embossing the cardstock and then colouring the images. Instructions can be found here

Cardstock: Bazzill and Recollections
