Little Fox Birthday


Meet today's card.
I made it awhile ago for a little person having a birthday.
Stencil over technique to try.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of white cardstock.  Using the Drizzled Lines stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, I rubbed on some Picked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink.  I rotated the stencil and inked again to create a crisscross pattern.  
  • Leaving that stencil in place, I put the Falling Sticks stencil also from ACLD, right over the top and rubbed on some Peacock Feathers DOX ink.  I love the pattern I was able to make for the background.
  • I placed the stenciled panel into my Misti and stamped the greeting.
  • Using a circle die, I die cut the center of the panel as I wanted to make that my focal point.
  • I placed that circle into my Misti to stamp the circle outline and that little heart.
  • I pop dotted the circle back into the background, matching it up.
  • Next, I stamped this sweet little fox from the Little Ones set by Photoplay with some black ink and fussy cut it out.  I clear heat embossed the image so it wouldn't bleed when I watercoloured it.
  • Using some DOX inks (same colours as above) that I diluted with a bit of water, I painted in the face of the fox.  
  • I mounted the card panel onto a white card base, then pop dotted the little fox head into the stamped circle space.

Here are the stencils I used for the background:
