Foxy and Fabulous!

Hi there,

So glad you stopped by today, where I have another card from the SNS January Reveal Sets, this time using the Hello Foxy Set 882 from the January Reveal. I have also incorporated some images from the three silhouette sets: Wetlands 1 Set 790, Wetlands 2 Set 791 and Right Beside You Set 812.

I made my background by sponging Memento inks Summer Sky, Dandelion and Cantaloupe to glossy white cardstock, using the Jumbo Daubers. Once the ink was dry, I applied the anti-static bag to avoid getting any embossing powder specks where I didn't want them, and the background images were positioned in the Stamping Platform (this way the scene was created and stamped in a oner!). They were inked with Nuvo Clear Mark and were then heat embossed with Black Detail.

I went back and added another of the grasses and then trimmed the panel in the Tonic Guillotine.

Mr. Fox was stamped in Acorn Brown ink on Kraft paper and was colored with the Copics. After he was colored, he was fussy cut using the Tonic 5" Mini Scissors and then Snow White flocking was applied to his tail, ears and chest with Brushable Glue.

Here you can see the fuzziness of the flocking. Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew was also applied to his eyes and nose.

A scrap strip of Super Adhesive Sheet was attached to piece of white cardstock and then run through the Tangerine with a couple of the Tonic Layered Clouds dies. The protective backing was removed and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft was applied to the exposed adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped in Nuvo Clear Mark and was heat embossed with the detailed embossing powder Sienna. I ran a copic marker around the Spellbinders Framed One Tags. This was attached by a brad over the bird, so that it could move. The panel was layered to glossy white and then to a black card base. The fox and cloud were attached with Wobbles, to finish off my moving parts card today.

  3. Shona, I always enjoy reading your creative process in this wonderful creations, and today really had me marveling at the thought and work you put into all your cards!

Then I am in aw of your flocking technique, and the perfectly placed drops on her eyes and nose! WOW! Talk about intricate detail! The cloud is the perfect touch, too. xx

  4. This scene card is just fantastic and I have never seen such a shimmery fox as that one is. It is awesome. Great background for him too. I love the glitter on the cloud and the use of the silhouette stamps.

  5. There is so much to admire and that I have learnt from this Shona. Thank You, it is a Super interactive card and I love the fox and his "flock" tail and the tag, which can also move, is a fab addition to the "wobbly" fox. Love it.
