Amazing fox

Hello and welcome! While I was doing some colouring last weekend, I coloured two foxes in one session. The first one (by Paper Smooches) ended up on the card of my previous post. For today's card, I used the equally sweet fox from the NBUS Fall Friends set by My Favorite Things, but I think my fox also feels happy on a Spring-themed card lol.

I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir coloured pencils and then fussy cut it out so that I could foam-mount it onto my panel. For the background I used a fun technique shared by Jennifer McGuire, layering two stencils (Moroccan Latice and Scrolled BG, both by MFT). I used distress inks to do my blending (twisted citron for the first layer and mowed lawn for the second one). I die cut my panel using a die by MFT (Stitched rectangle scallop edge) and adhered both the inner and outer part flat onto my kraft card base. The sentiment is from another NBUS stamp set by MFT (Geometric Greenery). The wood effect sequins are from Studio Calico.
