So What Does that Fox Say?

I don't know about you, but I actually love the song "What Does the Fox Say?" If you somehow haven't heard it, just head over to YouTube and search for it...then watch everything else the group has made. Seriously. Just don't try to eat or drink coffee while you do unless your computer needs a coffee bath.

So, when I saw that the Sweet Stamp Shop had a fox stamp set mimicking the song, I may not have been able to hit 'add to cart' fast enough. I mean come on, look how adorable he is!!

What does that fox say??
I used the sentiments from the song to make a tone-on-tone background for my little fox to sit upon, then layered it with some shimmery bronze cardstock and a kraft card base. A bit of neutral twine from Pretty Pink Posh made the whole card feel very nature-y and perfect for a guy or a gal.
Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
I stamped the fox with Memento Black ink then colored him in with my Spectrum Noir markers. Speaking of, any interest in knowing what colors I use to color my images or a video? Let me know in the comments! When he was ready, I fussy-cut him out and used my trusty foam tape to pop him on the card. A bit of foxy translation by way of the speech bubble (and some more fussy-cutting and popping) and this card was done!

So, did you see the part where I said 'video'? Thanks to some new software I bought myself for Easter, our YouTube channel is coming soon! Please tell me in the comments what YOU would like to see; start to finish cards, coloring tutorials, funny cat videos...I'd love to hear!

Happy Crafting!
