Putting It Together

I love Becky Pearce stamp sets from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This lovely fox is so cute.

I'm on vacation for two weeks, but how could I really be on vacation if I didn't bring crafting with me? It's what I love doing. But, since we crossed a border and a few state lines, I was limited in the supplies I could bring, of course. So, I had to think ahead to what I might want to make and bring various things I could use for those. Guessing what you might want to make for the next two weeks, a challenge on its own.

The days before we left for vacation had been too busy for me to work on a card for last week's KKS Saturday challenge, so, I thought I would try to put something together quick after we got home from the football game we had gone to with my family here. The game was my niece's high school vs their major rival. I didn't get the card done in time before the cut off on the challenge. Oh well, I will some day break the 30 min or less card creation barrier *laugh*

Everything dry fit together. I painted the fox using a stacked watercolour palette and water brush. I paired it with a die cut scrap I had stashed in the papers I packed and a panel from a Pebbles pad. I actually packed that paper with the intent to put it with the fox. The ribbon is one I got from Micheals a year or more ago. I'm glad I tossed in into my travel stash.

I had a bit of an issue in my packed supplies, my Festival Green Perfect Pearls leaked a little and got powder on other items. Of course it was the green because it has an incredible stay to its pigment. Handling the inks and other items in the same bag where I have the Perfect Pearls, it got the pigment on my hands which I transferred to the card base kind of finger print-y. I added more of the green to camouflage the boo-boo and also a spritz of Confetti White Perfect Pearls in water to fix the green and add a bit of background sparkle.

I popped the circle and fox up with foam mounting tape to add dimension.

The finished card. 

I added a gold sentiment: May Your Season be Merry & Bright
