Hi There, Foxy!

Hello friends and thank you for visiting the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today! I am Janette and today I bring you something a little foxy. Uchi's Design Forest Critters stamp set contains the cutest fox I have ever seen.  I knew when I first saw it at CHA in January that I had to have it!


Supplies:


Paper Dimensions:
  • 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Copic friendly white cardstock for primary panel.
  • 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock for woodgrain background.
  • 4 1/4" x 11" white heavyweight cardstock for base (scored & top folded).



Directions:
  1. Place stamps in Misti tool. Ink up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamp 2-3 times for a dark, crisp impression.
  2. Copic color images. I used YR04, YR07, E19, W00, W01 & R22 for the fox. E55, E57, E59, YG 03, YG67 & YG99 for the stump and grass. 
  3. Die cut or fussy cut images.
  4. Airbrush or ink blend Copic marker B04 on primary panel.
  5. Place diamond stencil over primary panel and blot with paper towel lightly saturated in Copic Various Ink Colorless Blender. Shift stencil as needed.
  6. Use splatter brush with Copic Colorless Blender for more splatter (optional).
  7. Audition critter and stump. Place "Hi" die and secure in place with washi, Post-It or other light tack tape. Remove critter and stump. Die cut "Hi" from primary panel 1x and from scrap white 4x.
  8. Thinly apply embossing paste over woodgrain stencil on white background panel. Allow to dry and apply Distress Crayon. Rub with finger to smudge and smear for good coverage. It doesn't not need to be perfect. In fact there is more charm when it isn't! ;)


Assembly:

  1. Apply foam tape or fun foam to back of primary panel. Cover the "Hi" area so that adhesive is exposed on through the front. Adhere to woodgrain panel. Adhere both to card base.
  2. Liquid glue all "Hi" die cuts in a stack with blue version exposed on top. Adhere into "Hi" opening.
  3. Adhere stump flat.
  4. Adhere Mr. Sly Fox with flat tape adhesive near his feet and base of tail. Apply foam tape or dots at top of head and tail.
