X5! 

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!

Supplies:

Stamps: none
Paper:  Staples 110# white, black, sand

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC651) on Splitcoast, Brenda chose a lovely site & I chose THIS for my inspiration. 
I started by die cutting the circle out then making a watercolor bg on it & splattering it w/ white paint. I put it back together & put the whole front panel into my Misti & I had to stamp the silhouette trees several times to get them dark enough. Part of a greeting was added & a die cut Wish. I used a white marker to fill in the moon & add the sparkling lines to the “stars”. A little Wink of Stella was added to the moon & stars, as well.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT628) is a tribute to National Puppy Day. While I don’t have a dog in real life, I do have a cute one on my card & he’s learned to put mail in the mailbox. What a champ!  And on the subject of dogs…the last dog I had was a blonde cocker spaniel named Tigger. We also had a conure (parrot) we named Odie. We called him Odie (after the cartoon dog on Garfield) because he thought he was a dog. He learned to bark from Tigger, but his bark sounded kind of far away. We realized he was imitating the dog when he was barking from the back yard. The parrot we have now is named Linus (after the character on Charlie Brown). He also barks because he learned it from Odie. Guess I also have a thing for cartoon characters, lol.   Here’s a pic of Odie on his favorite cup.

In memory of Odie 1985-2012


To make my mail dog card, I put together 3 different images..the dog w/ the fence is one. Originally he had a big stick in his mouth but I drew a letter to replace the stick. The lovebirds on the branch is another & the third is the mailbox, which originally had a big smiling daisy w/ a letter in its leaf. So there was some masking going on here. After I colored everything, I used a self made cloud stencil & sponged in the sky, & stamped a lines bg, tone on tone on the blue frame.

Here are the Copics I used.
