Happy Friday. I've got a few projects to share today. First up is my card for this week's Muse #17, where the Muse is Therese Calvird with this adorable card. I am also entering this card into this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC101: Stamp on DP, and this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge to use small pieces of paper.
I thought that Therese's card was just the cutest thing--I was inspired by the cuteness, three animals, and the paper piecing. All those pretty pastels made me think of a baby card, so that is the direction I went.
I paper pieced those darling foxes, using a tone on tone pattern for the main part, and then used the matching solid for the ears, tip of the tail and those bits around the eyes. I am embarrassed to admit that I just now remembered that I have dies for this set, and wish I had thought of that when I was doing all that fussy cutting. Well, I have to say that sometimes I do enjoy a bit of fussy cutting, so no harm done.
My next card is my second entry into this week's Retro Sketches rs#63 challenge, and I used the same stamp as my first card here. I was stamping white on black to make some chalkboard images to send to Kim, and liked the look so much, I made one for myself. After stamping in Fresh Snow ink, I smudged some more ink around, and also colored some of the white areas with colored pencils. I am also entering this card into this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge to use small pieces of paper.
Last for today is a gift tag I made to match this card from yesterday. I am entering this tag into the Gift Tag Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
