I stamped the critters from and the other elements with Crunchy Leaf Inkpad to Neenah Solar White Cardstock. After a heat set, I started the coloring process with Ohuhu Markers. I made a quick coloring on the tiny pieces, which means I am not layering them and I am using only 2 shades per color.  

Because the Beavers and the wood are the stars of this card, I played with them a bit more. When the coloring part was done, I added highlights with white pen. If you enjoy watching card tutorials from start to finish you can find the coloring process video over the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel.

Here are the Ohuhu colors I have used for the coloring for this card. If you have those markers too feel free to download my free swatching chart here.


I created 3 die-cuts with the grass border dies with the cilantro cardstock. Then I have created a pond with the  hillside border dies and mermaid cardstock.  I also created the edge of the pond with hillside border dies and paper bag cardstock. Then I placed this tiny die from the Sandy Beach Accents on the pond and run them through my die-cut machine with the largest Stitched Rectangle Stackables to have a stitched edge on the entire card front.

Next, I did a quick ink blending on the pond with peacock feathers distress oxide ink. I continued the same process with the same ink on the grass die-cuts. Then I blended the last grass and the background with cracked pistachio distress oxide ink. Now I have everything ready to finish this card, so I am adhering the die-cut pieces to the ink blended card front. 


In my video tutorial I’m gonna teach you, how I created this woodgrain effect sentiment easily with Ohuhu Markers. Its beginner friendly, the video is very short (only 3 minutes), but I recommend you to watch it first, and when you have 30 mins for practicing go through it once more but this time with your supplies. Feel free to stop it as many times you need. 


Now I have everything ready to finish this card, so I adhered everything together. I put the colored die-cut images to their right place with 3D adhesives. And last but not the least the wooden signs found their place as well.
