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.
