Pencils Colouring in A Spotlight | Gerda Steiner Designs

What card would you do, if you had a perfect critter image?

Hello Everybody!

This is my final post as a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs in October. I was very excited to feature several stamps sets I received from the company.

I should confess, I fell in love with Gerda Steiner Designs adorable critters stamps. I was not paid or asked to say this. And the set I am featuring today I have ordered and paid myself completely.

Today I am showcasing the recently released Gerda Steiner Designs FOXES Clear Stamp Set ( SSS | GSD ). This set is good for year-round friendship cards to encourage, to express gratitude or just to send a note.

It contains image of a serious owl, three foxes, a leafy wreath and three accessory stamps. How to use accessory stamps in a new way you can read HERE.

Mushrooms, a wreath can be misleading, but do not think only about Fall themed cards.

Today I am sharing a Clean and Simple card design suitable for any season.

This fox image is perfect for pencils colouring. This is a medium sized outline image without shading or small details.

To make this card I started with heat embossing the sentiment You Are The best in fine white powder down onto aqua card stock panel.

Next I stamped down a sitting fox image in light brown ink and coloured the image with Polychromos pencils.

When I was happy with my colouring I blended Blueprint Sketch Distress ink around the fox image.

Ink blending has changed the colour of the card panel and also created a spotlight around the focal image.

To finish off the card I foam mounted the panel onto a white card note.
