Craft Consortium - Over The Hedge Launch #1

Hi everyone 💜

oday I'm sharing one of my cards using another fabulous new collection from Craft Consortium 'Over The Hedge' (in partnership with Melissa Lowry). The collection launches on Create & Craft TV today time on Tuesday 10th September @ 2pm (UK time), the products can also be purchased in crafts both here in the UK and in the USA. The collection depicting hedgehogs, owls and foxes contains fabulous stamps, a 12" x 12" paper pad and embellishments. The stamp sets contain 2 of the same animals but in different poses and they are approx 2¾"-2½" tall; other elements are approx ½"-3" tall (1.5cm - 9cm).

For my card today I chose to do a bit of no-line colouring, my first attempt EVER. I've used Henry The Fox, which I coloured with pencils onto desert storm Neenah card. Isn't he the cutest, and both stamps work brilliantly together.

The links to the new products will be added after the launch, or you can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here and sign up for an update to this launch and any future product launches.  

Here's What I Did   
I covered the front of a 6" x 6" card blank with a piece of paper from one of my other Craft consortium pads, leaving a slim border around the edge. Next I die cut a piece of colouring card into a rounded corner square. I stamped the curled up fox onto the neenah card with a pale brown ink, and and then onto masking paper with black ink. The image was fussy cut out of the masking paper, then it was placed over the stamped image on the brown neenah card to cover it. The upright fox was then stamped slightly to the right of the fox laying down. The mask was then removed. Using this masking method is makes the upright fox appear behind the other fox. 

I stamped leaves from the set along the top of the square and lightly drew a horizontal line on both  side of the foxes for the grass line. The whole images was coloured using Prismacolor pencils and the white pencil from my Caran D'ache set. The completed image was then added to a square die cut from dark green card, the topper was attached to the card front using foam pads.

To complete the card I added dots in between the leaves and a few pearls beneath the topper.
