The Fox in the Forest - Hand Stamped Sentiments #355

 For the Inspirational Challenge  at HSS I added the fox from “Nature’s Best” into the forest from “Rooted in Nature” and added a cardinal from “Snow Front”. The slope was created using the “Curvy Die” and the diecut “Snow” is from an unknown retired Stampin Up die set

On a 4 by 5 1/4” piece of Whisper White card stock I sponged the sky with the new blending brushes applying Balmy Blue in a ‘blotchy’ manner creating a sky 
that looked like it was about to dump snow.

On and below the slope created with the Curvy Die was added some trees.  These were stamped with Old Olive and die cut with the Nature's Roots die.  Also added were some stamped trees from Nature's Best.

The fox was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White and coloured with Water colour pencils and a Blender pen then fuss cut, and added to the card front with dimensionals.

More sprigs and branches were stamped around the fox and on one of the branches I added a cardinal.

Snow was added to the base of the trees and along the slope using Liquid applique and Dazzling Diamonds.  In one area under one of the trees, some glimmer Crystal Effects was added to make it look like an ice patch. (Actually I inadvertently applied to much Balmy Blue to that spot so this was my "fix")

The sentiment was die cut twice- once in Night of Navy and one in Whisper White.  They were adhered together with each letter off set from the other, and then added to the sky in the upper right.

The completed art scene was added to a Night of Navy card base.
