That crazy, silly song What Does The Fox Say? keeps bouncing around in my head, so I used it as my inspiration for today’s hand stamped card. I used a photo of a red fox as my coloring guide.
I first stamped the fox from the Life in the Forest stamp set onto Cajun Craze CS, then used a blender pen and sponge dauber to add shading and cut him out using my trusty Paper Snips. Paper Snips are the perfect tool for cutting into small areas and tight corners. I stamped him again onto Whisper White CS and cut out the white parts to glue onto my Cajun Craze fox. For the trees, I first stamped them onto Whisper White CS and then made a reverse mask. Then I used Garden Green ink and stamped through the mask using the large oval stamp from the Oh, Hello stamp set. Shading was added with a blender pen. The white panel with the trees is just 3″ wide so that the raccoon and hedgehog can peek out. I think they’re trying to be sneaky. The mushrooms were stamped onto Whisper White CS, colored and then cut out. I always use Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive because the small tip and a very gentle squeeze allows me to add adhesive to small areas such as the fox’s legs and ears and I just scribble it over the back of the layer for a good strong hold. Just remember to scribble thin lines of glue and don’t get too close to the edges of your layer.
