Guest Design - Pencils Colored Foxes in The Spotlight with Ksenija Rizova

October 20, 2018

Hello Everybody!

It's Ksenija here and 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.

Today I am showcasing the recently released FOXES 4 x 6 Clear Stamp Set. 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.

Not Just for Fall

November 11, 2018

Hi! It's Rebekah here with you this evening sharing this card using the Owl Rather be-With You stamp set.




When I first saw this set I thought how great it would be for fall. The wheels in my mind started turning with ideas of cards colored in oranges, browns and reds. But this set can be stretched right into the winter season!

I colored this owl with shades of gray copic markers and then drew the...
