Autumn Days and Foxy Friends

Driving to my local town takes me along a tree lined road which is currently a riot of Autumnal colour. The leaves are beautiful montage of oranges, reds, yellows, with just a few greens, and still cling to the branches. A gust of wind will send them to the ground all crispy and crunchy, just inviting welly clad boots to stomp through them...
Today's card tries to capture Autumn on a card.  I tried a technique that I hadn't used before...the wet wipe technique.  Essentially you create your own ink palette using reinkers and a couple of folded wet wipes. Set the wet wipes on a non porous surface (like an empty stamp case) and add several drops of reinker.  I used three different colours and added a couple of drops of each colour...the colours overlap and spread and then you stamp using it just like an ink pad.
I had plenty of ideas that I wanted to try, so I covered a whole sheet of whisper white and some smaller pieces too. A stamped fox completes my first autumnal card - fussy cut so that he sits on his log!
I really enjoyed creating the backgroung paper for this card, and I have a few more cards to show you another time. Have fun creating your own Autumnal card and a walk crunching through the fallen leaves.
