When I saw today's sketch on CAS(E) This Sketch, I knew I had to make something with it:
I love a solid, simple sketch. And I hadn't used my new Foxy Friends stamp set since I made the Cheshire Cat, so here's what I came up with:
I had some trouble inking up the fox...my Calypso Coral ink pad is way, way juicy, so I tried an ink spot I got in a past Paper Pumpkin kit, but that looked pretty terrible. So I got out my super-juicy ink pad and a sponge, and sponged the color onto the stamp, and that worked out fairly well for me. Not perfect coverage, even stamping on top of a piercing mat, but much better than the first two I tried. I paired my fox with a sentiment from Love & Affection because I love that font and the sentiments are sweet, and I also used the foxy paper stack (A Little Foxy!) because I bought it and hadn't used it before. I'm not thrilled that the thick Whisper White card base makes the patterned paper look a little dingy but what can you do.
Anyway, I need to run out to the store and pick up dog food. It's a glamorous life, but one of my dogs just has to eat every single day twice a day (more if he can manage it...the other one doesn't care much at all if she eats every other day!). So off I go. Cheers, peeps!
