Pop Up Critters

It's a picture heavy post today because I've made a twist and pop card with each panel featuring a different critter.  I've also tried some 'ombre' inking using distress inks and a sponge dauber to create the sky and ground.

It is my first card using this fold and it took a while to make, but I was pleased with the finished result.  

My Japanese friend often sends me pop-up or 3D cards so I specifically wanted to make one for her birthday and chose this style to try.

This is an image of the front of the card:

This is the inside once it's 'popped' open:

Next I have a few close ups of each of the 4 inside panels:

And finally how they lined up inside the card:
