warm winter wishes paper piecing & water color Card

Made this cute card using Lawn Fawn stamps, paper piecing & water colors.

Stamped the Fox multiple times & paper pieced the scarf & mug by cutting out the pieces with scissors.

My daughter who I consider to be the true artist in the family gave me some of her art supplies from high school. She gave me the Yasumoto Niji water colors which are colors inside a tube. You can see what the water colors look like in photo below.

Used water colors: White on the Fox's tail & Burnt Sienna on the drink inside the mug. The Fox's tail is not perfect but I like it since I think that's what it would look like if a Fox had dipped its tail into my water colors on its own.

Added Glossy accents over the water color Burnt Sienna to make the drink look more real.

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black 
paper: cardstock - Kraft, red, white
punch: Fiskars corner rounder
stamp  Lawn Fawn Winter Fox
