A Fox Sitting


Foxes are plentiful in Wisconsin and I've had the joy of seeing the beautiful creatures in their natural habitat, however I don't think I've ever seen one sitting!



 
I started by free watercoloring a muted background of oranges and yellows onto a white piece of cardstock. After letting it dry, I stamped the cute fox from Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods and then after a bit of masking, the log from Critters in the Forest. I then watercolored each, the fox with heavy pigment, the log with light pigment, and then stamped a sentiment from Critters in the Forest. I embossed my card base with Lil' Inkers Designs' Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain and then attached a strip of orange pinked paper and some moss fabric tape and the main image. I finished the card with a wrapped bow of May Arts Natural Burlap String.

  14. As soon as I go back to work I get so behind on checking in on everyone and also you've been creating like crazy!!! Love this sweet little fox and your gorgeous watercoloring. I also love how there are so many little details (embossed background, twine, fabric tape, pinked edge) but it still feels lovely and simple. Also, I am jealous because I've never seen a fox and would love too. :)
