What Does the Fox Say?


 Reminder there's still time to play along with Challenge #70 at Tag You're It!

I created a tag using the same set that our Featured Artist Kim Heggins used for her inspiration tag, but I used the fox! The background was created with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks and then I splattered the tag with water.  The images were clear embossed and watercoloured with Distress Inks.

See you there!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #30

Time for another new Mix It Up challenge at SugarPea Designs! You have all month to play along with us, and each week several of our designers will share some fresh inspiration with their take on the challenge. Remember the more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning a $50 gift certificate to our store!!!



For my card today I used both the sketch and the photo inspiration. I started off by sponging my sky on Bristol cardstock with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. The add the detail to my background I splattered water to the panel.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white. For my five umbrellas I sponged regular Distress inks on Bristol cardstock and splatered them with water before die cutting them.  The canes were cut from black cardstock. I assembled the unbrellas and adhered them to the sky with tape runner and the blue and purple umbrellas were adhered with foam tape.
