An Autumn Fox

Hiya folks!

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far? Mine is a quiet one, eldest kids are on a sleepover, so won't see them until lunchtime. Youngest is still asleep, Dad watching telly, so I have a bit of peace this morning (yeay!)

My card today is showcasing one of my new images - Foxy the Fox - available now in my shop, Delicious Doodles. (Quick reminder - DT Call closes tomorrow!) I printed out Foxy large onto an A4 sheet of card, and coloured with watercolour pencils before scanning in and printing 3 times onto one sheet for my layering. By colouring in a large image I think I have even managed to make the fur look realisitic, what do you think?

My frame is made with a paper I designed myself using a leaf image I have in my shop, which had been coloured. I scanned the coloured version, repeated it several times, flipped and rotated in photoshop and put a graduated background behind them. Then I made a tinted version too for the main card. The darker brown paper is from Funky Fairies (no longer trading). I have followed the sketch from Sketch and Stash for my layout:

The flowers are made using several punches and a leaf punch, all bought from the local craft shop or ebay. The punches fit the challenge at Allsorts (use at least 3 punches) I have used 4. There is a wee gem in the flower centres too. I have used Autumnal colours, which fits the challenge at: Spoon Full of Sugar, and at Craft Your Days Away, where they also want to see Doodles. My last challenge for this card is at Totally Gorjuss, where the theme is 'Wild Thing'.

Righty then folks. Off to do some blurfing and some DT stuff later too, need to photograph a card, and finish up some colouring too. Busy day in the creative cavern today!! See you later peeps, and have a great day!
