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
Ink: none
Accessories:  Rubbernecker stitched rectanglesDeer FamilyBirch Trees, Stitched Hills dies, Prismacolor pencils, white acrylic paint

My Christmas card was fairly easy…the wonderful Snowflake Reverse die did all the work for me! I found some coordinating papers in a pretty color then die cut the snowflakes in white to put on top. I used just the Merry of the Merry Christmas die & stamped the small Christmas w/ Distress oxide ink & added it under the top layers.

Here’s a look at the inside. I used some of the snowflakes from the front die cut.

When I saw the technique challenge on Splitcoast (TLC676) was a fancy fold, the first thing I thought was “it’s gonna be trouble”. I was right. But at least I had resigned myself to that fact going in. And it was really only trouble for a few reasons…

1. I also decided I HAD to give the Gilded Faux Silk another try (first time was horrible). It made the sliding top really stiff & hard to fold.
2. My measurements were a little different so I had to reverse engineer it. Sheesh! Will I never learn?
3. I keep getting sucked into the bottomless pit of hubby’s plumbing reconfigurations. Not only has he acquired every plumbing tool known to man, he also constantly borrows MY crafting tools. Apparently, my tools are better than his tools, lol. And I have to help him reengineer the problem. (He’s NOT a plumber..he’s not even particularly mechanically inclined, lol.)

So..the gilded faux silk turned out better this time, probably because I needed snowflakes & blue & that looks good together. The fold finally cooperated. But then a fourth problem..silver & fancy folds are very HARD to photograph. It is what it is & here it is.

And here’s a look at the inside. I went simple since the front was an engineering feat!
