ETA…I’m linking my scene to the Foxy Foxes Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  You’ll want to play along!

Hi everyone! Welcome!  Today I’m hopping with Regina Mangum from Taylored Expressions Design Team.  Perfect Paper Crafting and Taylored Expressions design teams have been posting random days throughout July and there will be one more day of hopping together, August 11th… so keep commenting on this post for a chance to win!

Today I used the ‘cool’  Perfect Tears, 3 Tool setI used the scallop edged ruler, both sides…the larger for the snow and the smaller for the ice skating rink.   The set comes with a water pen… very nice… the water pen is different than the one Julia shows in her video below.  Really works slick!  Love it!

I created this 5 ½ inch square card with Taylored Expressions, Woodland Winter stamp set and Neighborhood Border die.   I’m in love with these cute, cute critters, sentiments and scenery!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Here’s a close up of the scene…


❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I hand cut out the critters and the tree and then colored them.  I like to do it that way so the white edges get saturated with color too.

Tree/wreath – YG23, 25, 67
Deer – E43, 44, 47
Red – R24, 27, 29, 59
Raccoon – W3, 4, 5, 7
Fox – YR27, E08

So wintery and festive!  I spattered the blue background with Dylusions White Linen spray.  Shake it up really good…unscrew the cap and tap the ink from the tube onto your card-stock!  It’s a winter wonderland!
