Hello, Foxy...

Foxy Hello

Happy Friday-Eve, and Happy Thanksgiving to my American peeps, and anyone else who should be celebrating it. :)

I know today may be full of turkey and pumpkin pie for some of you, but I'm sure you can squeeze in a bit of studying, CASE Study stylee, right?! *wink*

Today's foxy little number was inspired by a number of elements from our muse, Keisha Campbell's, card. I'd normally add a pic of it with a link but you'll have to pop across to the CASE Study blog to check it out as I'm blogging on the go on my tablet. :)

Here are the elements that inspired me anyway:
  • The circle apertures
  • The impressed circle pattern
  • The use of a tag
  • A stripy pattern
  • Kraft cardstock
I had this sweet Papertrey Ink fox waiting ever so patiently to be inked up. I can't believe I resisted the urge to ink him up sooner! 

tips and tricks
  • To achieve the stripy pattern behind the fox, I used a making technique. After stamping and colouring the fox, I placed a stamped post it note over him and proceeded to stamp the stripes. 
  • It's all about the circles on this design. Circle aperture, circle tag, and polka dot impressed pattern. 
  • I couldn't decide which shade of twine to use so opted for both! It adds an extra touch and allows me to have my cake (or should that be twine?!) and eat it! :D
Right, gotta sign off now as both mine and my tablet's battery are running low! 

Please join in the fun with us at CASE Study, and pop across to see what amazing creations the rest of the DT whipped up!

Thanks for popping by today and for those celebrating Thanksgiving, enjoy!
