Just Add ...wings!

Just let me tell you I not so friendly with my foxy friends at the moment! I have been punching and gluing lots of different critters using this bundle for pillow gifts and samples for a retreat I am helping run in a few weeks with some fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators. I am just about finished and probably won't make any more for a few weeks!

While taking a break I saw that the Just Add Ink challenge this week would be perfect for one of my punched critters. The challenge is to Just Add ... wings soooo .... a fox becomes a bird!


He really is sweet and very easy. Can you see which of the shapes I used from the Fox builder punch?


His head and body are made using the fox head with the ears trimmed off. For the body I have turned the fox head on the side and trimmed off one point so he can sit. The wings are from the shape that I think looks like a moustache. Add in some feet, feathers on the top of his head and a beak and he is all set.


The card front has a circle cut through it using one of the Layering Circles Framelits. The A Little Foxy DSP stack has a design that looked like a branch to me. Once I had the front complete I used a pencil to mark where the circle opening was on the card insert and stamped some leaves that peep out behind him and a sentiment that is hidden when the card is closed.
