Calm in the Woodlands

Surprise, surprise.....I'm not using a "new" stamp set today.  I had to go digging through my sets to find some sort of creature that hangs out in the woodlands.  In the woods behind our church we have a wetland and we have two herons that return each year to nest, so I went with Lily Pad Lake and the coordinating dies. The challenge that is asking for woodland creatures this week is The Paper Players.

The colours I've used are all subtle, which is unusual for me.  I decided that my water was going to be Pool Party and I went from there adding So Saffron and Mint Macaron.  For the extra grasses I've used Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive.  The sky has be brayered with Balmy Blue and I've used the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder for the background.

Relatively quick and easy for today.
Hope you're staying warm this sunny freezing day (where I am).
