Wild Challenge ~

The Greeting Farm has been hosting a Guest Designer contest for the past two weeks with the illustrator, Marina Neira's animal images.  The first contest was to create a card with the theme of 'wildlife' and whatever that meant to you!  I used this card since I'd just created it the week before...so I don't even know if I'm eligible for this contest!!  LOL  This weeks challenge was to create a card with this sketch

The super funny thing about this image to me is that I saw it as a fox!  Once I went back and started looking at how everyone else colors these images, I realized she is a skunk!  lol  Silly me!  Pretty straight forward here - colored with Copics, edges of main image sponged with Antique Linen ink and a fine tip glue pen on all of the snowy areas to add some super duper sparkly and fine glitter. 
SUPPLIES~

INK: Ranger Distress Antique Linen; PTI Scarlet Jewel

Since you all seemed to love the snowy picture I took for you the other day, I stopped and took a pic of a beautiful tree on my way in to work just for you!  Have a fantastical day!  :o) alyssa
