Christmas Fox

Hello crafters!
 It's my turn on the TGF blog today and I've combined a few stamp sets to create a wintery holiday scene.


I absolutely love this little fox from the new Hello Fall clear stamp set. I think he can be used for all kinds of cards.  
I used the fabulous snowflake stamp that comes with Holiday Ian for my resist embossing in the background. 
One of the presents from the Let's Mingle stamp set fit perfectly to complete my little scene.
I colored my stamped images with Prismacolor pencils.  Here are the combos I used: 
fox: tuscan red, terra cotta, pumpkin orange, mineral orange, yellow ochre, jasmine/ 
sandbar bown, ginger root, cream, white/ black, warm grey 70%, 50%
teal: cobalt turquoise, muted turquoise, light aqua, grey green light
purple: black grape, dark purple, lilac, greyed lavender, white
