The Greeting Farm – July Previews Day2


Hey all! Welcome back to day 2 of peeks for The Greeting Farm!

Today’s super cute set is called Foxy Fun! I am over the moon with it! I paired it up with a couple of other sets called Beepin’ Awesome and Main Street!

I had so much fun with this one, creating all the masks so that I could stamp it all out onto a one layer flat panel. Then inking in the background and lots of copic colouring later and our sweet little card was complete!

Don’t forget to stop by The Greeting Farm Blog to see what all the other awesome designers made!

I coloured up the fish with my copics, then created a mask with the wave die, then used the new wave stencil to create the background. The sentiment banner finished off the sketch and the front of this card!
