MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 261

Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Fox  and Friends Challenge 261
- use strips of paper at an angle -

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 found a gorgeous designer paper for my background. I really didn't want to cover up the paper too much so I started with thin strips of white. I only use about 3 to begin with but my stamped image was lost in the background, sooooo, more white pieces. That helped my flower pop out better and still left enough of the pretty background paper visible. My flower was colored to match the paper using Copic markers. I took some white ribbon and used a matching Copic marker to color the ribbon. A glitter pen added some sparkle to my flower center, and DONE! 

I used MFP stamp set "Dogwood Blossoms".



  1. Very pretty design with the angled strips! love the colors you used.
