Thank you so much for watching!

Christy colored all the fun images from Critters in the Desert in soft desert hues. I love how she gave the critters whimsical pink cheeks! Then after using the coordinating dies to cut them out, she set them aside to create an amazing background.

First, she inked an L-shaped area with Distress Oxide ink in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. Then she splattered the panel with water and those same inks. Finally, she also splattered a coppery gold paint to add lots of shiny sparkle! Once the background was dry, she assembled all the desert images in a fun collage mix.

Christy white-embossed the birthday greeting on Chocolate Bar cardstock, trimming each phrase before popping the strips on the card. Inside the card, she stamped another punny greeting and more cute images.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful inspiration with us, Christy! Your collage-style design is so cool!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

  1. Wow! This is the absolute best desert coloring. Love the layout too. We have most of these critters in the coastal desert just north of San Diego, and I would love an add on set with a bobcat, coyote and desert hare.
