We have a really wonderful site for the Inspiration Challenge this week..Fine Art America. I had a really hard time choosing, but finally went w/ THIS picture. 

I didn’t have any fox images or dies (will have to see about that!), so I used a deer family die instead. I die cut them out of sand colored c/s then used Prismacolor pencils to add a little color to them.  The snow hills & birch trees were cut out of white & shaded w/ Prismas. On the lg black bg, I splattered it using a paintbrush & some white acrylic paint. Usually, I like to have a greeting on the front & it feels a little odd not to have one & not to use any stamps at all, but I guess I’ll get over it  😉 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Mary, the newest Featured Stamper (FS514)! What a big wonderful gallery she has! Since she has such a large gallery, I just picked a couple of pages at random & selected THIS from those cards. I kept the deer & trees but added some blues and rearranged the layout a bit.
After die cutting the front white panel, I made an arched frame for the window in order to have the dk blue show thru. I stamped the splatter bg in the opening w/ the white ink then added some stickles for sparkle. The light string was stamped w/ gray & lightly colored & the greeting stamped in black below it. The die cut trees were added w/ a little more stickles.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used for the light string.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT580) asks us to plant a tree. So here are a couple of trees along w/ some deer & a bird.  If truth be told, this particular tree was planted a while ago & has just been waiting in the wings. 

To make my silhouette card, I started w/ some dp that has a faint green pattern around the edges. I stamped the trees, deer, bird & clouds w/ two shades of green Memento & took a dry blender pen to add shading before the ink completely dried. The littlest deer was stamped twice w/ the darker green to appear more in the shadows. The ground was first stamped w/ the image in the cottage green, then parts of it again in the pine. I used the Belles Vignes image to add some vines all around the panel w/ the pear tart ink.  Parts of the Find Beauty image were stamped along the ground first w/ the ivy ink, then w/ white ink on top of the dark areas.
