Feed me Seymour!

I'm probably totally dating myself with today's title but I don't mind at all!  It just seems to fit with my project today.😊  Have you checked out the new Craftin Desert Divas release that went live yesterday??  Have you done a little shopping??  There are so many wonderful new stamps and dies available.  If you haven't, hurry on over to the CDD store right now!  Both of the Design Teams have done a fabulous job of bringing you lots of creative inspiration too.

When I got my hands on the new Fox Villain digi stamp, I had an idea pop right into my head.  I knew just what I wanted to do.  The hard part is taking the idea out of my head and making it actually work on the card!

I'm not going to lie.  This card was a labor a love but I feel like I successfully translated my idea to paper!  I used the new Building Dies, Fox Villain digi and Unicorn Hero digi.  I had to make a prototype of the card to make sure I had everything sized just right and would all fit.  The grass and road I just free hand drew in with my copic markers.  I also took BG0000 and BG000 and created a sky with a few cloud details.

For the building, I used a couple of blue markers to color a white piece of paper and then die cut it out.  The fox and unicorn I had to size down a bit.  These too were colored with Copics.  For the pet plant (aka Seymour) I realized the plant stalk wasn't going to be long enough.  No problem.  I just cut it apart right at the leaves.  I held the top part in place and the bottom where I wanted it to be.  I used a Copic safe black marker and extended the stalk.  I colored it in to match the other two pieces.  I used another set of smaller leaves to cover the section where I joined them together.  It's like magic!

After that it was just a matter of putting all of the pieces in place.  I did pop up the pot on the plant and Unicorn Hero with foam tape to add just a little more detail.

Thanks for stopping by today!
