Tree rings background

Sometime it's nice to have a change from using designer series papers as a background for your cards. This is where the brilliant full size background stamps from Stampin Up come in.

I've taken the 'Tree Rings' stamp and inked it using 'Soft Suede', the beauty of it being a stamp is that you can choose any ink colours to match your projects and you're not limited to the colours in a dsp pack. 

I thought the 'Foxy Friends' stamp set would match the background perfectly, the cute little creature in his natural surroundings. 

The trees are stamped in 'Garden Green'
The tree stump 'Soft Suede' to match the background.
The fox in 'Calypso Coral' with 'Basic Black' for his face details and legs. 
Lastly 'Cherry Cobbler' for the sweet hearts sign. 

I like the way the fox has his head cocked slightly to the side, my dog does this when she is hoping for a treat!
