Mr Sweets the Fox

How cute? This is Mr Sweets the Fox, a digi from the Oddball Art Company. I couldn't resist him. I'm not sure what happened to his left hip. Either I was over-zealous with the fussy cutting, or he needs a hip replacement. Let's just draw a veil over that shall we and focus on his pretty face...

I started off by embossing a piece of card with a leafy embossing folder by Sheena Douglass. I rubbed over the design with a mixture of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Delightful Dijon inks, which I then spritzed with a pearlescent spray. Mr Sweets is coloured with Promarkers and the patterned paper is appropriately called "A Fox's Tale".
He is nosing around for chocolate at Pixie's Snippets Playground where he'll fit right in with Spike and his lady friend!
I would also like him to trot into the following challenges:
Oddball Stamps Challenge - Fall is in the air.
Sunday Stamps - using this great sketch for inspiration -

Cards in Envy - the Colours of Fall.

Happy crafting! April x
