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...
