Falling For You Week - Day 2

October 1, 2019

Hi there! Elena here, with 2 cards featuring a set from our current release, Falling For You.

My first card celebrates fall completely. I stamped and die-cut all of the images from the set, and colored them using copic markers. I love that big tree image! It really grounds the scenes so well. I added extra leaf images, scattering them around for the fox to catch into his jar.

For the background, I did some ink blending. I blended a brown and a blue together, adding a bit of yellow to help them blend better. I faded it to nothing before it hit the bottom of where the tree's foliage begins. That blue really adds a brightness to the card!

To add extra interest, I added accents with both white and brown gel pens. 

My second card pulls that same fox toward Christmas:

He mixes in so well with the cuties from Santa Bear! I did some selective inking to pry the fox away from his jar, and gave him a birdie to hold instead! He looks like he's presenting the bird to Santa, hee hee.

I used 2 sentiments from the Santa Bear - the first part I curved around the top of the Snow Scene die. I placed it to the left a little to balance out the largeness of the Santa bear image. The card felt more balanced that way. The second part of the sentiment grounds the images.

I hope you like what I created! Thanks for stopping by!
