MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 284

Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Fox  and Friends Challenge 284
- round all corners -

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.

I got the idea for this card from some very creative person on Pinterest
Someone's got skills. lol I had to come up with my own stamps and 
images though. I think it turned out fine. First of all I rounded 
all the corners for my layers. Taking a piece of brown CS I ran it 
through my wood-like embossing folder and then scored it every 
1/2 inch, nipping out a "v" at the end of each 1/2 inch score, creating a 
"fence". I ran an ink pad, using a darker color brown. I stamped my 
sentiment on the white panel and began stamping my branch, inking, 
stamping and stamping again without re-inking. Liquid Applique works 
so perfectly for the snow. I dotted spots all over the card and lined the 
top of my fence and heated it for the wonderful puff effect. My Cardinal 
is a die cut. I cut him out twice so I could add some dimention 
to his wing by adding some mounting tape to the back of the top wing. 
I used a white pen to outline the eye and put a black pearl in the centeer. 
His bill and feet were colored using a gold sparkle pen. He was then 
mounted up on top of my fence. I did sponge some brown ink 
around the Cardinal and the white main card. And...that's it!
Thanks for stopping by!

I used MFP stamp sets
"Snow Gifts, mini set" .
"Marsh Silhouettes"
