I absolutely adore this stamp! However, wanted to a more simplified image for this card.. So I did some stamp masking... 


If you have been around my blog much, you've probably seen me do this... however, I wanted to show that you can mask out some fairly complex images if you take a little time...

Simply use clear tape to cover the parts of the stamp you don't want on your image.  This is a bit more complicated with complex stamps like this, but it is doable. Don't forget, you can use your scissors to cut custom shapes from the tape to match what you need to mask.



Ink up your stamp... then remove the tape.



Stamp you image! With this mask I cut out the tree, and 3 animals! It really simplifies the image!




I kept the over all card design simple as well... I love how it turned out!

You can, of course, also use the full image to create gorgeous projects brimming with details...

Dies: LDRS Creative Garden Escape 


The actual stamp leaves the tree just fading off at the top... to make it look like a more complete image, I extended my coloring past the edge of the stamp, then used the leaves from the Garden Escape die to create foliage.


The gate from this die set is sized perfectly to add dimension to this scene! I cut it out of some metallic card to add a variety in the texture of the card... I love how it turned out! And the dies cut the metallic card stock BEAUTIFULLY!
