Sending Sunshine

Hi peeps! How are you all doing? I finally get to play with my Hero Arts fox stamp. Love the li'l fella from the moment I saw it, but didn't get the stamp till just about a month ago and yep, just now I get to play with it. Have lots of DT works lately, so didn't have that  much time playing around. :)

I did sneak in to play last night and I made this card for the current Hero Arts August challenge to use critters or make a scene. I always love the way bamboo looks and thought it would be fun to create a scene using this Hero Arts bamboo die-cut (available through Silhouette).


I simply cut the bamboo on white cardstock and then colored them afterwards. The darker leaves were colored using Faber-Castell big brush and the lighter color one were colored using Copic. Here's a close-up look of the fox.


I don't know if you could really see it, but there's quite a few texture to this card. I curled the tree trunk, so it actually looks kind of round to convey the realistic look of a tree trunk.  I also curled the fox body itself and use thick and thin pop-dots to create depth. And the tail is curled up. Added black enamel for the eyes and the nose.



Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day. Cheers...
