  1. Thank you! I’m not sure yet how I want to use them but they are awesome. I may size some down to tiny for the governess in one of my dollhouses to use for a nature lesson!

    1. The background is dull because its old. To make the background white you need to use a photo editing programme to either brighten the whole image or select the background and lighten it.
