Mmm, Pumpkin Spice
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!
