Silver Fox


Playing along with Cas Watercolour Challenge, 
a new card challenge for all of us who love to watercolor.


This is my 2nd card, this time using a technique 
Kay Miller showed us here:


I embossed the fox from Kay's set: Stylized Autumn
in silver embossing powder,
directly onto watercolor paper.
Then masked him as I stamped the leaves around him,
rolling the ink in first one color then another.
I then dragged my wet brush all around the leaves.
The colors bleed out onto the paper, giving it a cool watercolor effect!
Then I stamped and did the technique onto flower and leaf die cuts 
from the same set.


I also added a bit of shading to the fox's eyes and ears.

Did I mention that this is the 1st challenge for this 
sister blog to Cas Mix Up Challenge? 
Now you know!
