Well, it took almost three hours but I did it. I finished this beautiful, woodsy fox last night.
This is a standard A2, 5.5 x 4.25" horizontal card. The left and right panels are each 1" wide.
The center steps, form front to back are 1", 1.5" and 2" in height
I sponged the sky in Marina Mist, the ground in Mossy meadow and Baked brown Sugar.
Each center panel was sponged with the same ground colours as the front one.
To create the back panel I sponged both ground colours onto the bottom of the Woodlands embossing folder and then using a brayer added the blue for the sky and then embossed onto a white piece of card.
The trees framing the card on either side were embossed on white card and then cut out using an x-acto knife.
All the trees where finished by sponging with a touch of Sahara Sand and colouring in the texture with an Early Espresso marker.
The bushes (a total of 40 are the tree from lovely as a tree stamped in Always Artichoke and sponged in Mossy Meadow and Baked Brown Sugar and then hand trimmed from the cardstock.
I stamped the fox image using Memento ink and then coloured him with Copic markers - C7 around the ears and nose, Y35 and YR24 for the eyes, YR24, YR04 and R24 for the body. The grass is YG25 and the 2 lighter tones in SU's Olive Green Blendabilities.
The background images was trimmed to 4.25" in height and adhered to the back center panel 2 bushes and the fox to the middle center panel (the fox and froth bush using foam tape)
One bush was glued to the front right and then the tree panels are glued to either side panel. The last bush was attached using foam tape to the front left.
the greeting was mounted on skinny banners and attached to the back panel with foam. To match the colours perfectly I inked the matting banners in Baked brown Sugar and Mossy Meadow.
This card would also be perfect for Father's Day.
