I thought I’d post something a little out of the norm for me today and searched back to my roots (aka the stash of supplies I never use!  LOL) and created this card.  What started my whole process was finding this little fox already colored up on a shelf that was out of the way.  Shame on me – this poor little fox was lonely and yelped with excitement when I found him.  😀

The images I stamped for this card is Foxy from Some Odd Girl and Daisy Rock from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Another interesting supply I used, which was also nearly forgotten, is the open book shaped die.  So with all these combined I thought it would make a perfect story telling theme.  Now, we just need to figure out what that fox is thinking…

I didn’t want to color a full background so I used the dot technique with various light blue colors.  I think this helps to distinguish the image from the background and also added a little more color to the center.  Finally, I finished up the card with layers, stitching and accessories!
