Hi there crafty pals, how’s tricks?
Good I hope! I have been doing a little more creating in the craft den this week (YAY!) – I’ve actually been feeling a bit under the weather this past week, headachy and the like, so a self-imposed ban on screen-use after work (sorry, it means I’ve not been visiting your blogs too much, but it has been a relief not to be using the computer all day, and then lots of the evening too!) Instead… crafty time!
Here’s a card I made to enter into the new Tuesday Throwdown challenge #209 – Furry Little Friends…
I have lots of animal stamps, but I don’t think this little foxy friend has ever seen ink (“I know?” <she said, in best Friends‘ Monica voice> What was I thinking?!!). He’s from the Lawn Fawn set ‘Critters in the Forest’ – I love so many of their adorable criters sets, but I just have to set myself some limits, otherwise the floorboards will give way, IYKWIM. I am trying to have a bit of a craftden clearout at the moment as the stash collection
is starting to get is already well and truly, out of hand. That’s a whole other story
Anyway, I digress.. the cuteness of that foxy – yes, isn’t he so sweet? – coloured with pencils (I didn’t watercolour or blend too much, to try and get a nice texture finish to the fur.) Then fussycut and layered on Nesties labels 4
A bit more stamping… the designer background ‘Fabulous Flourish’ by Hero Arts on some patterned paper from my scraps box, plus embellished with plenty of sequins, a button and a fancy stick-on fabric rosette, which was by Papermania ages ago.
Thanks for stopping by crafty pals!
We are off to have a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend (including a day out at the races on Monday, which should be fun!) and hopefully a spot more crafty time in the mix too Have a good weekend yourselves! Rx
