I love the cheerful critters stamp set. So easy to work with! And such fun images, great for any occasion!
Creating shade, to create depth-
Do you notice that I used the grey Blendabilities around some of the image to create depth? I used the slate grey blendies, and the lightest colour of the set- you don't want it to stand out, just be enough so that the eye dosent see it, but it just looks "right".
Looking closely I also clear embossed hearts on the whisper white cardstock. The White panel is quite large, and could detract from the overall effect if left plain... So I chose the stripey hearts image from the "best day ever" Saleabration stamp set. It just adds some texture to a plain background.
