Merry Kisses - Süße Füchse

Und weiter geht es mit den Weihnachtskarten. Heute stehen bei mir wieder zwei süße Critter im Mittelpunkt.
And the Christmas card making continues. On today's project I'm using two little critters as my focal image again.


Die zwei schmusigen Füchse stammen aus dem "Merry Kisses"-Set von Neat and Tangled und können natürlich ebenso gut für Hochzeits- oder Jahrestagskarten verwendet werden, aber ich habe heute eine Weihnachtskarte damit gestaltet.
The two cuddly foxes are from Neat and Tangled's "Merry Kisses" set. Of course you could also use them for anniversary cards or the like, but today I made a Christmas card with them. (The German greeting reads "Merry Christmas".) 


Koloriert habe ich die beiden Süßen mit Polychromos-Farbstiften. Um die Aufmerksamkeit nicht von dem Hauptmotiv abzulenken, aber dennoch eine komplexe Szene zu gestalten, habe ich mich für einen rein weißen Hintergrund entschieden. So gibt es auf der Karte zwar einiges zu sehen, aber die Füchse stehen dennoch ganz klar im Mittelpunkt.
To color the two sweeties I used Polychromos pencils. As I wanted to create a complex scene without distracting from the focal image, I decided to keep the background plain white. Thus, there are quite a few things to see on the card but the critters are still the  main attraction.

  2. Wow! Such a cute and charming card!! I absolutely love it!! The foxies look so adorable themselves, but the lovely background in white, with the silvery glitter and the texture just form the perfect background! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creation with us at Little Tangles challenge!

  3. Wow those pencils colour the foxes so beautifully (along with your colouring skills of course). They look gorgeous!! And love how you kept them the star of the card and kept everything else white. All that white texture is such a brilliant idea and the white glitter perfection. Always so wonderful to see you at Little Tangles and Merry Christmas!!
