Busted this out this morning during a few minutes of inspiration... and the few minutes I had before Hubs was beepin' the horn for a tac-run to an out-of-town store:

Supplies and notes:
  • I was inspired by Melissa's texture paste on a black background, so, oh yeah, I went there.  I used Teresa Collins modeling paste through a Martha Stewart stencil 
  • Once dry, I painted the fox with Loew Cornel watercolors
  • Wasn't fun enough, so I added some splatters with watered-down gesso
  • Still didn't give me what I wanted, so I added some Aged Gold frantage by Stampendous
  • I mounted this to a yellow card base in such a way that it matched Melissa's parallel lines.  The yellow card base was shared with me by that mixed-media superstar Autumn at Sew-Paper-Paint... thank you!
I made this for Happy Little Stampers CASE challenge for May, CASEing this card by Melissa Lane:

I'd also like to share this at CASology, where their current challenge is sprinkle!  I sprinkled a bit of that frantage-love.  So there's that.



  1. What a fun CASE Mimi, I like the colors you added and the sprinkles in the background. You did good with the honking horns, I try my best to make to make it before hubby starts calling me Glad to see you at HLS CASE.
