Retro Rubber #50..Colour Challenge..


It's time for another awesome challenge over at Retro Rubber

This time we want you to use the photograph as a colour inspiration..

The colours in the photo made me think of Foxes for some reason.. So I dug out my Lawn Fawn Winter Fox stamp and die set (from 2014) and used that as my base. I coloured the Fox using Promarkers and glitter.

I tried all kinds of backgrounds and finally settled on the Mama Elephant wreath stamp (from June 2015) and messily watercoloured it, using the colours from the photo. I die-cut the panel using a square stitched die by Simon Says Stamp and mounted it onto a small kraft blank (from JT).

I mounted the Fox using foam pads and added a simple sentiment by HOTP that was a freebie with a magazine last year.

Lots of older stamps used here, so a total win in my book and a really simple elegant birthday card at the end of it all.

Show us your interpretation of the photo, but first go over to Retro Rubber and view the great makes by my teammates.

Challenge ends on November 4th. Don't forget to use a stamp a year or older and tell us about it that's part of the fun. Also, please limit your entries to 10 challenges including ours.



  1. Aw, there's a fox after my own heart - he is surely enjoying a nice hot cuppa tea! Wonderful image and great coloring. The wreath is the perfect touch. Lovely take on the photo inspiration!

  2. What a totally fun fall birthday card. The fox is adorable and the messily colored wreath puts all together nicely.

  3. What a sweet foxy card! Love that the image came with its own die cut! Propping him over the colored wreath was genius! Somebody is going to love this birthday card!! (By the way, SU just announced yesterday that we will have stitched dies starting Nov 1st... I have been wanting those!!!!)

  4. Hey foxy! Love this sweet lil fox! I love the wreath and its the perfect setting for the lil guy! Debbie thinks its tea in his cup - I say hot chocolate and butterscotch schnapps!

  5. Aww!! this little fox is so adorable, sitting there smelling the aroma of her hot cup of tea, or is it coffee? Cocoa? Heck!!! what ever she's smelling must be delicious.
    Love the wreath you framed her with, just so pretty.

  6. Your fox looks so warm and cozy, and he has a glittery tail! That's so cute! I love how you were inspired!

  7. Claire love your card!!! That Lawn Fawn stamp is one of my favorites! Now I need to get him out and use it this holiday season! Thanks for the inspiration.
