Cute Fox Birthday Card ~ Color Dare #525

It's Friday and that means a new challenge from our Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare! Each Friday we give you a new group of colors to get you started on any paper craft you like. See the fine print on the graphic below for the rules of this challenge. 

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page.

For my card I used Bluebird, Lagoon and Nectarine as my colors from the grid. I also used the free colors of Black, White and Brown. 

I stamped the fox from the Floating By set. This set was a special might be available yet. Check the Online Only section of my website or click the link below to see if it's available. 

The TriBlend Markers used are shown in the photo. These markers are wonderful! You get 3 shades of the color in the barrel and can easily blend the colors. For example, on the balloon I used the light color then shaded with the medium. After that I went over the entire balloon again with the light and gave the colors a nice blend. The fox was colored in a similar way with the brown. The light shade was used for the face, ears and tail tip. The medium for the rest of the body. The shadow parts were done with a 2nd coat of the medium shade. 

I stamped the fox and balloon on two different pieces of white cardstock in Intense Black Exclusive Ink and layered them lining up the balloon string. The balloon layer is popped up and some Thin Foam Tape.  The background paper is from the Mix-In pack (Jul-Sep)(retired). Finally, a few Melon sequins were scattered around the card front. Oh, I forgot to mention I also used the edge of my scissors to distress the edges of the white layers.
