Hi there, I am still under the weather but decided to drag myself out of bed, after sleeping the last 24 hours away and get in a little stamping. Since my mind is a bit foggy with cough medicine etc. I used the help of my Color Coach to come up with this color combo. I should use my color coach more often, this color combo is wonderful!
On another note, thank you for all the get well wishes I have received. My readers are the best!
Now on with this tutorial. . . .. . . .

Stamped the fox with Really Rust ink on my Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic, turned it over on my 2.5″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock and then rub the back of the plastic to transfer the image. This makes a reverse image of the original.
Stamped the fox using Really Rust ink.
Added shadowing to the original image using a Really Rust marker.
Colored over the original image only with a Versamark marker and heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
I wasn’t sure what colors to create my scene with so I pulled out the Color Coach. The coordinating colors for Really Rust are Mellow Moss and Bashful Blue and the Complimentary color is Night of Navy. Okay then, these will be the colors I will include in my scene.
Brayered Bashful Blue ink at the top and bottom of the card stock.
Also Brayered Night of Navy at the top and bottom of the card stock, not covering the Bashful Blue ink entirely.
Ripped a post it note and used it mask the bottom of the card stock. Sponged Mellow Moss ink in to create the grass.
Sponged a bit of Creamy Caramel ink, not covering the Mellow Moss ink entirely.
Removed the post it note mask and sponged lightly Mellow Moss and Creamy Caramel ink on the reflection side.
Stamped the Flowering Branch stamp using Mellow Moss ink on the reflection side.
Stamped the same image above the original image of the fox using Always Artichoke ink.
Colored the flowers in on the Always Artichoke branches with a white gel pen.
Colored over all the flowers using an Apricot Appeal marker. The colored marker will stick to the White Jel Pen on the top flowers and they will appear lighter.
Added White Gel pen dashes in the water.
Cut a 4.75″ x 6.25″ panel out of Bashful Blue card stock. Brayered Night of Navy ink at the top and bottom of the card stock and then stamped the flowering branch stamp again on the top and bottom left side using Night of Navy ink.
Sponged Night of Navy ink on the main image panel and the Bashful Blue panel edges.
Added Mellow Moss panels and Old Olive brads and here is my finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be filled with the sights of Springs approach.
