Critters at The Squirrel and The Fox

It's Challenge time again at The Squirrel and The Fox, and what's a more fitting challenge for a blog named after two woodland creatures than..

CRITTERS

That's right, this fortnight we want to see your furry or feathered critter creations. Our challenge is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, and Robyn is offering our challenge winner five free digis.

For my DT card I was lucky enough to use Robyn's Digi "Sailing, Sailing" and here's what I did with it.


I think blue and brown is one of my favourite combinations right now. I tried something a little different for colouring my image this time, and attempted a sepia toned image. To keep with the vintage feel I sponged all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. I am absolutely besotted with this paper, and love the fact that it's covered in compasses - just perfect for a travelling duck!  This card also uses my brand new and much anticipated Magnolia Doohickey die - Leaf & Swirl. It was so good, I had to use it twice. :)

I hope you'll join us at The Squirrel and The Fox for our challenge.

See you there!

Also entered into the following challenges:
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Birds
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Winter Birds
Sentimental Sundays - Ribbon
Crafty Card Makers - No floral embellishments
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Try something new (sepia colouring)
Robyn's Fetish - Animals (how could I not, given it's Robyn's very own ducky image!)
