My October Creation:
I combined a few Penny Black stamp sets here: Smile All Day, Snow Blanket, Nature's Friends and Nature's Gifts along with a couple of old Stampin Up stamps (leaves and sentiment).
The tree image Snow Blanket was inked up with distress inks and stamped with the help of a stamp platform. This tool is extremely helpful when I add another color of ink like I did here on the edges of the tree. The fox from the cute set Smile All Day has been stamped using Walnut Stain distress ink onto an extra piece of bristol paper and I used my Zig Detailer waterbrush for coloring, then fussy cut to add to the card. I wanted him to stand out a bit from the colorful background so I stamped the sentiment from Stampin Up onto a strip of white card stock and added the fox next to it. The flying birds are from the set Nature's Friends and the bird sitting on the fence post is from the set Nature's Gifts. I added a little bit of ink to the sky and around the tree using a blending tool. Using my Zig detailer I also went over the fence to color in what would have been snow. (And if you look closely you can tell that I missed a bit of snow here and there :)
