And here it is my inspiration, featuring Let's Curl Up stamp set.
I turned the sketch to create a horizontal scene. I firstly stamped some of the greenery of the set on a piece of watercolor paper, using some no-line coloring ink. On a different piece of paper, I also stamped the fox. I then colored everything, using Distress Inks. I usually prefer Copic coloring, because water tecniques are out of my comfort zone. But, I really enjoy watercoloring, I found it relaxing. For the background, I used the wet on wet technique, as I wanted softer edges. I also did some wet on dry to color the leaves, which are more detailed. I die cut the background panel using the first largest A2 Stitched Rectangle Set 2.
I then moved to the protagonist of the scene, the fox. I love coloring foxes! I mainly used distress inks in Rusty Hinge, with some Walnut Stain for the shadows and I think they are a good option for foxes. With a black fineliner, I added the eyes and the nose. At the end, I die cut it using coordinating dies.
For my sentiment, I used the Bitty Hugs & Kisses, which is really helpful because it has many sentiments for many occasions. As I knew the fox would have covered the central part, I white heat embossed the two parts with a space between them. I the fox to the sentiment and I used foam tape to add to the previous background panel.
To complete the card, I matted the scene using a 4,25"x5,5" Poppin' Polka Dot patterned paper.
I really hope you will like it and be sure to check the MFT blog to see all the other DT's creations.
