I decided to use the new Foxes stamp set. What is great about this set is that some of the images are solid. Which means it is very easy to create a no-line colouring image even if you have trouble, like me, with this technique. I stamped my image in a medium shade of a grey/brown ink. Using some coloured pencils, I simply traced the fox in the darkest color and gradually blended a medium and light shade of brown.
I coloured a couple other images from the same set in the same way, then fussy cut them out.
I used the scalloped circle die from the new Dotted Balloons Creative Dies to die cut an area out of front panel. This die (well the whole set actually) is fantastic!! Not only does it cut out the scallop circle but it cuts this super delicate frame as well!! So versatile.
I played around with the layout for a bit..
I first die cut the speech bubble from the Stitched Duo Speech Bubble Creative Dies from vellum but decided it blended in way too much. Also, I felt there needed to be something behind the fox. In the end, I die cut the speech bubble from kraft cardstock and adhered a piece of patterned paper behind the scallop cut out. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the And the Fox Says... stamp set onto the speech bubble.
And here is the my finished card...
