MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 273

Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 273
- Weaved center (tutorial HERE) -

Here's my sample card as a design team member for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!

Here's my sample for Mark's Finest Papers design team.

This was a fun card to make. I went to the tutorial and then I found some coordinating papers to create my weave. I used a glue dot to hold the weave in place then I used glue to attach the weave to my main card front. I used Copic markers to make my owl and I just had to add the googly eyes. They are just too perfect for him. I made a panel and stamped my sentiment and drew on the owl's feet. I went around the edges using my gold leafing pen. I mounted the sentiment and owl and added a circle behind the owl to help him stand out better. 

I used MFP stamp set "Animal Birthdays".



  1. Perfect choice of subject and color Good job........Lis

  2. What a fun card and I love the googly eyes.

  3. Great job on the weaving, I like the different brown dps you used, looks fun with the cute owl!
