Nice to see you Mr Fox

Nice to see you Mr Fox

I started off with a background I’d previously made using the cling film technique.  For the distress oxides I used (all Tim Holtz distress oxides - gathered twigs, walnut stain and hickory smoke).
Angie Davis does a brilliant tutorial on YouTube on how to do this technique - her tutorial is called Guinevere’s paradise 


Next I used a circle stencil and also a brick wall template.  I placed the circle stencil on my card, then the brick wall on top of that and using a blending tool and using walnut stain distress oxide i coloured over the bricks (to fill the circle template). 

This is how it should look now 

Next i took a torn piece of paper to make a bit of a landscape on the bottom of the card. I used walnut stain for this.

I then inked up the first of my stamps, spring trees by Lavinia stamps but I didn’t stamp approx. the bottom inch of the stamp. 


The next thing is to line up Fox 2 (Peri) from Lavinia Stamps so that it’s at the bottom of the tree and also on the landscape  to make it appear the tree is behind him. Then stamp the hare from the set of whimsical hares, also on top of the landscape. 

Next using the distress oxides as above and the following Lavinia stamps - lavender, bluebells and meadow grass I stamped randomly at different angles to create the foliage. Then, using mini leaf 5, randomly stamp the leaves again with the three distress colours. 

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Look forward to seeing the results if you were to do it yourself 

thanks, Jo
