Mmm, Pumpkin Spice

I am using my first SugarPea Designs stamps today.  So so cute!  And I'm excited that The Heart Desires has started carrying SugarPea with more on the way.  Woo hoo! 

I first stamped the sentiment using ombre ink then die cut the fence.  I cut another fence and adhered the two together to create a bit of depth.  Next I used cloud and grass masks I keep on hand that I had made from transparency film and dies to sponge up the background.  The falling leaves and edges of the pumpkin were also sponged.

I saved the fox to color for last--should it be a male or female fox?  Do they look alike?  Yes, these are the things that went through my mind as I colored.  Did you notice the little paper-pieced plaid scarf?  This is how I justify hoarding scraps of my favorite paper.  You just never know when you're going to need it!

I'm entering this in The Paper Players #314 Sketch (turned on its side),  Coffee Lovers Fall Hop, Cardz 4 Guyz #139 Autumn Colors
