Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge #173


The challenge over at MFP Speedy Fox & Friends #173 is "house." I've had this log cabin image printed on watercolor paper for eons and finally colored it, and made a card. I seldom use watercolor paper anymore, but I wanted to use this image to help clear out my unfinished stash of "stuff." Clicking to enlarge may put it more into focus, because it looks blurry to me.

I colored it with Copics and markers, and matted it with scraps of black, blue, and off-white cardstock, putting it all on a medium green card base. I'll add a sentiment when I use this, because I like it just the way it is without a one.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

You should keep this one, frame it, and hang it. I love that scene.
