Wolf Moon

     A card this morning with a new image I got over at Delicious Doodles.  I just thought this winter wolf was so gorgeous, and it seemed time to give canines a little time to play on this blog which seems to be overrun with felines.  :-D


My sketch came from There She Goes.


     Although the image didn't required a lot of coloring, I used my Promarkers to add blue to the sky, a touch of green to the tree, pale yellow to the moon, and gray to the wolf.  I added gel sparkle pen to the snow on the tree and a few of the snowflakes in the sky.

     The papers are from DCWV, either Linen Closet or Trade Winds stacks.  The 'ribbon' is actually jute cord, which seemed to work better on a masculine, CAS card.  I used an EK Success corner punch at top and bottom, and then added the punched out leaves to the bracket the image.

     Challenges:
Cards und More -- Ice and snow
Crafts 4 Eternity -- TicTacToe: blue, ribbon(twine), snowflakes
Creative Creations -- Keep it simple
Creative Stamp Friends -- Winter
I [heart] Promarkers  -- Anything goes
Lady Anne's Challenges (Weds.) -- Anything goes
Ribbon Carousel -- Winter spirit
Tuesday Alchemy -- Winter wonder
Without Words -- Baby, it's cold outside

     Have a great Saturday and check back this afternoon for the latest challenge from Eclectic Ellapu.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
