Thankful Fox

Hi everyone!

I am back from a wonderful vacation (a long road trip out west to see family) and super excited to be back in my studio!  

Today, I decided to color up this adorable little fox from PhotoPlay Paper.  I started by stamping the fox, leaves and acorns in using Copic-friendly ink, and then coloring them in with my Copic markers.  Here are the colors I used for the Fox:

           Fox Belly and Tail:  E30, 0
           Fox Body:  E18, E08, YR18, Y17, E31

Once all my coloring was completed, I cut all the images using the coordinating dies for the set.

I die cut a panel for the card front with a stitched rectangle die, then cut a circle window out of it with a circle die.  

I treated my panel with an anti-static powder to keep the embossing powder from sticking where is shouldn’t, then stamped my sentiment using black pigment ink.  I  heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Lately, I really like using black pigment ink and clear embossing powder for embossing black sentiments (rather than VersaMark and black embossing powder) because I think the sentiment looks a little crisper.

I used foam adhesive to pop the panel up over a piece of cardstock that I had embossed to look like wood, then adhered the panel to my card base.

Lastly, I arranged my colored pieces to fit inside and around the circle window and added a few gems for some sparkle.

I hope you like this project and I’m really glad you stopped by my blog today! 

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
