Patchwork Nature

Hi there,

I decided to make a no-colouring card using a little fox stamp as my main image, as we saw a fox on the roundabout just outside our estate.

I used a square base card and added some papermania patterned paper to the background. I then added a printed strip of silhouette pattern printed onto pearlescent card (I can't remember the name of the designer). Finally I stamped the fox and the buttons from a Patchwork stamp set that was free with a crafting magazine, onto a gingham oval that I had in my stash. I added this to the card base using 3d foam pads to raise it up from the background. What is your honest opinion about leaving the image uncoloured?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
ATSM #336 Anything Goes
Catchthebug - Back to nature
Sweetstampin' - Get Ready for Spring
inkspirational #184 Pop it up
intaas #55 CAS with blue
dragonflydreams - include an animal

I thought I should also share a dino update with you. It is from last month though - I need to get a more recent picture!
At this point the third Dino had taken 28hr36 taking the overall time to over 201 hours.

I also thought you might like to see my blue tits visiting the nest box!

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz


  1. Great card and the image looks perfect uncoloured against the patchwork background--unfortunately your video wouldn't work for me :(

  3. It's a lovely card, but I don't see the whole sketch from Cheerful Sketches. I'm missing 2 of the vertical (or in your case horizontal) stripes.
