On The Blog at CAS-Fridays Stamps

Hello friends!! 

Today I am on the blog over at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps with a grungy card that will make you SMILE! I used a Gelly Plate with some Oxide ink to create a two funky backgrounds, one of which I used in my card. Below is a sneak peek:

I hope you will hop on over to my post to see my complete card and a mini-photo tutorial on how I created it. 

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Reminder

 Hi everyone!! 

Today I am popping in with another card for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #524. There is just a few days left so I hope you join us with a project!!!

Once again I used one of the images from Laurie Furnell Ink's Animal Digital Stamp set. This time I chose to enlarge the fox to color in. I am trying to perfect the coloring in of fur so this image was perfect to use. 

I used the the theme and some of the colors as my inspiration from the challenge photo. My fox is red in color and even though I know the cupcake papers are red, on my computer they look like a dark pink. That color inspired the pink color of my balloon.

I used Copic Markers in a variety of E's and a few YR's to shade my fox. I didn't monitor the specific colors as I did have to go over some areas to make him as dark as he is. The foxes around my area tend to be a deep red color so that is how I colored him in.

The sentiments are from The Greetery. I had them in my stash and just pulled them out to use. I did cover up some of his body for design purposes.

Instead of using Glossy Accents on the balloons, I chose to emphasize them by using a Clear Wink of Stella pen. This produced a glittery effect on the image. 

The sky was created by using four Copic Markers (B000-B01), the darker shade (B01) around the fox to the lightest shade (B0000) out toward the edge. I then layered this adorable image over some plaid pattern paper that matched the colors I used in the card.

Please hop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #524 reminder to find out how you can win some Laurie Furnell Ink images, as well as to see some of the other Design Team projects. 

That is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!!
