Mythology/Inspired By A Story Monday Challenge

Simon says stamp challenge is really cool this week...

A card that is inspired by a myth, fable, story.

I love the Aesop's fables, so I went with the "Fox and the grapes" fable.

A very thirsty fox was trying to get to some grapes but he just could not reach them, he finally gave up and said "those grapes were probably sour anyway!
The lesson is : just becuase you don't get what you want does not mean what you wanted was not any good. Don't bad mouth something you can't have.

I used the Fiskars wine stamp set and the fox came from Colorplay stamp set.
I colored the grapes and fox with alcohol markers then I watercolored in the background with blue.

I hope you liked today's card and I hope you learned a nice little lesson about being happy with what you have and not talking bad about what you don't have.


  1. Great idea for this challenge. The stamps and colors are wonderful.

  2. Fantastic interpretation of the challenge theme and I adore that little fox telling the story, it's fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog... x
