A Fox on the Farm
Hard to believe we are at the end of July. Our county fair is now over and we have four more coming up. I don't think we will take animals to any except maybe our State Fair, but we still like to take a day and go and enjoy each of them. On my parents' farm out west, they have a fox. She acts more like a pet than anything, following them around while doing chores. Foxes are curious animals by nature, and can be bold sometimes, but not aggressive. She has created her den near one of the barns. For a couple of years now, they have lived in this harmonious relationship. My brother posted a picture of her the other day so I was inspired to put her on my card for this week's sketch challenge.
Of course we have the perfect stamp set to use for such this occasion - Foxy Friends! I stamped her in Calypso Coral and Basic Black ink. I inked the tree up with Wild Wasabi ink and placed it behind her just like the big tree that is next to her den back on the farm. I decided on two shades of blue, Soft Sky and Island Indigo to mimic a sky. The strip of Crumb Cake card stock balances it well as the ground. When seeing her you often wonder what she is thinking. The words from Basket of Wishes seemed appropriate on the matter. I adhered my little scene onto a piece of Whisper White card stock backed by a Wild Wasabi card base. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my little fox friend. Happy Stamping!
