Magical Monday: Cliff climbing!

I’m not very adventurous in “real life” – but I’m willing to do a little cliff climbing (or make a fox do it for me) with my Copic markers!

Cliff Climbing

I tried a bunch of different things with this darling little stamp set from Mama Elephant – the three little critters hold signs, and there’s a huge variety of sentiments that can be stamped onto their papers. But what I thought about here was – if one of the critters was feeling congratulatory, where might he go to show his appreciation for an accomplishment? To shout from the top of a cliff, of course! Watch the video below or click HERE to view in HD on YouTube:

To make the reddish-brown layer behind the colored cliff climbing panel, I took a piece of white cardstock and colored it with two of the colors in my little fox – a soft blend from top to bottom. It’s a great way to “create” matching papers when you don’t have any of the right shade in your stash!

I’m glad this chicken-hearted non-climbing human can rely on a little fox to do the cliff-climbing for her!

  16. Argh – you make these little backgrounds look so easy! Did you sketch that cliff beforehand, so you had an idea of where it was going, or does this stuff just flow out of your pen like magic?!
    I’ve got this stamp set on my wish list – better go get it now, while they’re still in stock – I have a feeling they’re gonna fly off the shelves today!
    Thank you, as always, for all you do!

    1. No sketching…I wasn’t even sure what it would look like til I started drawing it 🙂
