Foxy foxes


Here's my entry to the sugarbowl blog this week. I have turned the sketch they had upside down and made my own flowers from two different punches and different cardstock. I usually follow sketches exactly as not to get disqualified, but this time I just had to use the quickutz fox instead of the two panels. I actually bought this die for this stamp only, lol. I don't have any sugarnellie stamps yet, I got this image from a friend and it's on top of my wishlist :) I must say though that I always thought the fox was hiding behind the girl. Now that I coloured them in I see that he is quite thin and sitting next to her instead. I still feel like he's hiding behind her and have a hard time seeing it differently, lol.


It's a quite simple card using three different coordinating patterned papers. The papers are so beautiful though that I feel like they lift up the whole look. The little flowers on the left panel are glitterembossed and the background paper has clearembossed details. Just stunning! A great card for autumn, don't you think?

Promarkers used: umber, burnt umber, henna, ruby, berry red, saffron and pastel pink. I added glitter stickles in the middle of the flowers and on the girl's buttons.

A super duper card - that quickutz die is just perfect!

I thought the same as you about the fox being behind - well, you learn something new everyday don't you?!
