ColourQ #211 and Tuesday Trigger

It is a super fun color scheme this week at ColourQ cQc #211, and I made a card inspired by this card I saw over at the Mama Elephant stampede. 

I paper pieced this cute little fox, using a sheet from the Limeade Ice pattern pack.  I used solid Limeade Ice paper covered with Prisma Glitter for his face and the tip of his tail.  Since the glitter covered his eyes, I put them back on using Ranger Black Enamel Accents.

I made a matching envelope just for fun, lined with the same paper at the bottom of the card.

My next card is for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.  I was inspired by the chevrons and the colors.  I selected just a few colors to work with on my card, because it was too busy otherwise.  I cut a Pieced Chevron die cut from Smokey Shadow card stock.  I adhered that to a base of SU Basic Grey.  Then, I randomly filled in spaces with Scarlet Jewel, Summer Sunrise and Aqua Mist.  I stamped my tag three times and cut and popped the different layers, to make my focal point.

Stamps:  Hello Foxy, Lil Inkers Balloon Builders
Paper:  White, Limeade Ice, Recollections
Ink:  Orange Zest, Limeade Ice, SU Strawberry Slush, Versafine Onyx Black, Memento London Fog
