Stacey Yacula and her beautiful illustrations steal my heart. These Friendly Foxes were an easy pick for a CAS card. I stamped the foxes in light ink, put a base coat of Copic marker colors down, then went over the colors with matching Polychromos pencils for added texture. I love coloring in this fashion… sharp pencils really help give texture and fine details.
I trimmed the panel down with a rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle STAX set 1, and mounted the card on black card stock. I used foam tape to add the panel to an A2 size card base.
My second card is a fun Birthday shaker card using the new Square Trio Shaker Window Die-namics and Pouches.
Sweet Birthday Wishes… this was a fun card to make. I started with watercolor paper and Sheet Music Background stamp. I stamped the paper with embossing ink, and heat-embossed with white embossing powder. I taped the panel to a clip board and pulled out some of my favorite coloring mediums… Tonic Shimmer Powders! I sprayed the panel with water, and added the pigments one color at a time to get a rainbow effect. I used Solar Flair, Cherry Bomb, and Blue Blitz. Once the panel was dried, I trimmed it down with a stitch rectangle Die-namics, and then die-cut the trio squares. I adhered the pouch to the backside of the panel, filled the windows with sparkly Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and closed the windows with card stock. I used the Sweet Die-namics to die-cut Sweet three times, glued and stacked them, then glued them onto the included shadow. I picked a coordinating sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments stamp set, and used a Skinny Strip Die-namics to trim the sentiment. I added them to the card front, then attached the card front to an A2 size card base.
