I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! We've been fighting off head colds all week, so it's been a bit slow going here. But we are on the mend and ready to take on Thanksgiving next week!! Glad the sickness hit now instead of then :)
We have an adorable little release this week for you at Sami Stamps. It's actually a bundle deal - if you spend $8 or more in Sami's shop, you get this sweet little collection of 3 fox images for free!! Let me tell you, these little foxes are so stinkin cute! I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted to use, because I wanted them all!!
I chose to use Acorns Under My Paws for my card. Even though I felt like complete crud working on this card, I'm so happy with how it turned out!
Then I started working on my image. I wanted to have a really pretty fall sunsetish style scene. I printed off my image on both regular cardstock and some labels that I could use as a mask. Masked off my image and started to apply my ink. I started with Pumice Stone and Frayed Burlap for the dark shadowy area behind the fox. Then added Squeezed Lemonade for the sky. I took the edge of my ink blending foam and tapped it into my ink pad and swiped it across the sky randomly to get the fun swirly cloud design. I used Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade to do this. There is a little bit of Pumice Stone in the sky just to add a bit more depth and darkness. I finished off the scene with some Forest Moss for the grass.
After uncovering my image, I colored it in with some colored pencils and used a white gel pen to fill in the little buds on the flowers.
Grabbed some coordinating paper from a Lawn Fawn pack and added that across the top of the card. Then adhered my sentiment, which is embossed onto some vellum, across my image and lined up where the background stripe is. The greeting is from an awesome Simon Says Stamp set called Lots of Thanks.
I finished off the card with a scattering of some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins. I adore this card! It turned out almost exactly as I planned. And for being under the weather while making it, I'm proud that I could still get something together :)
Be sure to stop by Sami Stamps to take advantage of this awesome little bundle you'll receive with an $8 purchase!!
