despite the 110 degree weather outside,
I have slithered my way to the craft room
to do something in between resting periods,
this heat is oppressive, all I can do
is mope around and pout,
anything more gives me shortness of breath.
Oh boo hoo hoo, right?
On with the project,
I've used the little foxy fella
from the TGF Outdoorsy set
that the fabulous Kellie Winnell sent me to play with,
you can find this set and many others at Tickled Pink Stamps,
and HERE is where you'll find THIS set in particular.
I've coloured in distress inks on watercolour paper, then cut him out and adhered him into a shaded identical image, colouring the scenery of the backing image, then cutting a pocket into the image between the skyline and the grass to tuck my fox into, here's a close-up for ya (click to enlarge, as per the usual)
I've used MME paper, bazzill CS, the punches are both Martha Stewart and the flowers are from my stash, the center flower is Prima and I've used a BG button in the center of it. The sentiment comes in the Outdoorsy set, I stamped it then shaped around it, punched some holes and ran this dreamy organza ribbon through it.
I am going to enter this into the challenge at The Beary Scrap which was to use their sketch and to keep it Clean and Simple, which I feel I have done here.
I have played along with The Play Date Cafe which is colours of Dark Brown, Green and Beige, mines is sort of beigey, hope this counts...
At EveryBody Art they are hosting a Check It Out challenge (paper)
At Crafty Catz Challenges Sue wants to see animals!!!
At The ABC Challenges they are back to A and that means August, and this little boy scout out at camp really sums up my idea of summer fun. Darn it, I wish I was a boy, lol.
I also have some wonderful news to share and it involves the little critter creations similar to the one you see right now!!! I am elated to tell you that I was accepted onto The Stamping Bazaar's first ever design team!!!! Hip hip hurray!! There's nothing better than working with what you love, so really, I am just thrilled!!! Since becoming obsessed with stamping last year, this has been my dream, to work with the talented Marina's images and now I am getting the chance to do so, for which I could not be more grateful :)
Well, I will let you all get back to your weekend,
thanks for stopping by,
I'd offer hugs, but it is plainly too hot for that!!
