A Heartwarming Card – Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! Inspired by the Hello Bluebird color challenge I created this heartwarming card. When I had a look at the colors, I thought they would go perfectly with the fox from the Cocoa Party stamp set.

The fox from the Cocoa Party I stamped with Memento Desert Sand on Perfect Colouring paper. I wanted to do some no-line coloring, so that is why I chose a light colored ink. On my YouTube channel, I also have a video showing different options for no-line ink.

After stamping, I colored the image with my Copic markers:

  • Fox: E37, E99, YR24, YR21, E42, E41, E40, R30, R000
  • Sweater: BV29, BG97, BG95, BG93
  • Cup: E18, E09, YR18

For the background of the card I layered 2 stencils on top of each other: Watercolor Wash Free Form from MFT, and the Geo Snowflake stencil from SugarPea Designs. I really love both of these stencils, and they provide a fitting background for this little fox. The inks I used for the background are Distress Oxide Prize Ribbon, Faded Jeans, and Tumbled Glass.

For the sentiment I die cut ‘hello‘ 2 times out of white cardstock and stacked them on top of each other. Underneath I added a sub sentiment which I heat embossed on black cardstock.

I did not add anything else to it, as I liked this clean and simple look, plus now the focus is still on the colored fox.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
