Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 277

A Sympathy Card is not one we like to make but is needed. So this week make a sympathy card.
I have stenciled the background by laying the stencil on my card stock and sponging with the first color. Moving the stencil just a smidge and sponging with a second color. Repeat again with a third color.

Tutorials
Aug. 27-- Making Camo

With the addition of Paper doll Chuck and his hunting outfit we needed to come up with ways to color camo. His outfit is perfectly already outlined for you. So many techniques could work well with this outfit.

The technique I'm showing you works great as a background as well as a great coloring for Chuck's hunting outfit.
Here's what you need:
 

What I used is the backside of the smaller stamps found in the paper doll sets. So that means the etched side of the stamp is facing your block and you're inking the smooth side.
 

Start stamping starting with the lightest color.
 

Continue until you have it filled in and you are happy with it.
 

And there's your Camo background ready for a masculine card.

 

and check out Chuck's hunting outfit.

Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 276

This weeks challenge can go several ways. The theme is candles. You can decorate a candle or have a candle on your card front. I made candles with 3 different DPs. Finished off the card front with an embossed in gold sentiment.
