Mr and Mrs Fox

Hello friends

Rain rain never go away, you are so welcome! 
I was in my cabin yesterday and so grateful to hear the patter
of rain on the roof and at times, downpours. 
Sadly Bella was less impressed, she is a fair weather walking dog.

I got around to doing some playing...(I mean working!)
I was itching to try the new Fox Stencil by Tina Ashton Art.

I had a kraft wallet, one with the traditional card circle closures.
These make great gift envelopes.

Taped down the stencil and masked off the grass, tulips and bird with sticky notes.

I used a mix of Distress Inks to create a reddish-brown 
and my round blending tool.
This kraft wallet was very absorbent, the stencil still worked perfectly.

Isn't he handsome!

On the reverse of the wallet, I turned the stencil slightly to have the bird flying upwards.

I go in with a fine tip black pen to dot the eye and add a beak.

Mr Fox.

Mrs Fox!

I only just learned that a group of foxes is called a 'skulk' or 'leash',
I'm sticking with Mr and Mrs Fox!

You can find all the stencil designs on the website here.

Take care friends, have a perfect start to your week.

Hi Christine
A great idea, I like what you did with Mrs Fox. Stencils are a bit out of my comfort zone, but may have to experiment, you make it look so easy.
I'm hoping the sun will come out again.
Have a good day
Chris xx

Morning Christine,
Cute gift wallet.

Oh how I love what you've done with my friendly fox! Mr & Mrs Fox are so cute on the tags, and I love how imaginative you are with using my added elements! Beautiful. I feel a Baby fox coming on! Ladies, stencilling is far easier than it may appear, don't fear it, give it a go. It's like creating your very own piece of art with a massive helping hand! Xx

Love this. So cute. I have made 1 Christmas card so far with my robin stencil but plan to make more. Heavy rain here in central Scotland but I'm off to craft so it's fine with me. Have a good day x

Hi Christine, Mr and Mrs Fox are so cute, I love this.
We have had 'stair-rod' rain, but at 8pm it is the nicest part of the day, a bit of sunshine.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
