What Does the Fox Say?

I have to admit that I bought this set, just so I could make a “What does the fox say?” card for my grandbaby. The set isn’t my style so much, but I NEEDED that fox! The rest of the critters are growing on me though, and I have thought of several other cute card ideas already.

This had to be the valentine for Aubrey this year though, because she LOVES the song and plays it over and over. I downloaded it to her little tablet that she got for Christmas, so I wouldn’t have to listen to it any more!! If you don’t know what I am talking about, just google “What does the fox say?” and watch the video. A spoof gone viral. Way beyond viral, actually.

Just basic stamping here, and I used blender pens and ink pads to color in the fox and trees.

Aubrey, who is in pre-k this year, pointed out that I needed to color more carefully and try to stay inside the lines. I tried to explain that it was a watercolor method which gives the artist creative license to go outside the lines on occasion and that it actually lends itself to the fluid, unconfined nature of the technique. Or something like that. She interrupted me mid explanation with an impatient pat on the hand and said “It’s OK Nana, just try to do better next time.” Ah, Mrs. Roy….. grasshopper has learned well. I felt like giving myself a punch on my behavior ticket and putting myself down for a nap. I am pretty sure she’s not going to buy my story of artistic intent on the over spray of smooch spritz inside the card either, but I have learned my lesson. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

Aren’t the Word Bubble framelits a HOOT though!??! I love them and I think they will be used A LOT. Scrapbook pages, cards, This and That. So many fun ideas.

I hope you get to stamp today!!
