Since last Summer, I've been trying to get hold of this stamp set from MSE - why? That's easy, the little fox is just so darn adorable its hard to resist such a cutie pie. So imagine my surprise on Christmas morning to find this little gem hidden under the tree :)
Once again I decided to follow the sketch from Fusion, I'm actually getting quite good at not wandering of track. I started by embossing three stitched circle dies leaving enough space for him (yes hes a he) to be stamped in the middle. I coloured him with Zigs and had an oops moment with the balloons. I have a love/hate relationship with my Zigs, the love part is when everything goes according to plan like the fox - the hate bit is what happened on the balloons, and the ink bled and made the cardstock all bitty, urgh!
To save me from starting all over again, I decided to colour them again on a scrap of watercolour card and paper piece back in, voila. I stitched the border in a balloon stringy kind of way, stamped the sentiment in Versamark onto some salvaged black cardstock and embossed with white, cut out using my eye - hence wonky fishtails and adhered with 3D foam tape so it was raised above the stitching.
This little fella will definitely making more appearances throughout the year - I have some cunning plans for him ;)
