Forest Friends

Today I have a card with another of Karen Middleton's digi designs for Cuddly Buddly, this one is Forest Friends from the Fairy Collection. My image is coloured with Copics plus a frosty sprinkling of Stardust Stickles. In addition to my usual skin tones I've coloured with G20, YG63 and 67 for the greens, R0000, R20, 21 and 22 for the pinks, E30 and E81 for the fur trims and E40 - E44 for the brown tones on the tree and the deer.

And here is the finished card. I've used Kraft cardstock for the base and to mat my image, and to cut the border with a Nellie's Choice die. The background paper is from Kim's Heaven Sent digi collection which I can't seem to find just at the moment - I'll ask Kim where it's at. I've added a length of green satin ribbon (and there isn't a blob at the top it's a reflection), punched leaves, little roses and snips of pearl string and organza ribbon.

Papertake Weekly have an anything goes theme this week, whilst the Anything Goes blog are looking for vintage or shabby chic - I think my inked edges and colour choices will qualify me for the latter.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, enjoy!

  3. What an unusual image & I love the way you have coloured theose furry parts of his clothes - they look really flufffy. Your use of pearl strings is lovely & I do like your inked kraft edges - very effective & I would definitely place this in the Shabby Chic category.
