Here’s One I’m Making – Foxes and Fun

We have recently found out that our niece is into foxes, which is really good news as they are so “in” this year. I made this card to make her smile.

bj_gws_02It meets three challenges:

It also has dies from lots of different companies, from the base, to the grass to the foxes and to the tree and leaves.

Beth_GWS_02Beth_GWS_01I have used a side stepper for the base of this card, I find its a great design to tell a story with, especially when using animal stamps such as these foxes.

Beth_GWS_03As well as the fox stamps, I used the limited edition “Thoughtful Branches” dies and stamps from Stampin Up to make an autumnal tree.  I decided to stamp with the mixed media glue and “colour” the leaves by using gilding flakes.

Beth_GWS_04I love this technique but I do breathe a sigh of relief once I know the stamp is clean afterwards. This was a very detailed stamp so I made sure it was extra clean before putting it away.

Beth_GWS_05with such beautiful dies and stamps, I didn’t need to add much more to the design, just a couple of flowers and a wink of clear stella on the foxes themselves.

bj_gws_01(I will let you into a little secret – the fox at the front is only holding a flower because I was a little too generous with the wink of stella and the coral bled into the white belly!)
