Are y'all playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge? It's to work on your coloring everyday.  This is my Day 9 coloring project.

For this card, I started out by using a homemade stencil. Which I made with a transparency sheet and using an old Creative Memories paper trimmer. The trimmer has two different curved edges. When the stencil was made. I put the card on my Make Art Stay-tion and began blending inks with my Amazon makeup brushes. After the card base was complete. I then stamped the fox and sentiment. Next, I colored the fox. When that was done, I cut out the sentiment and fox. Then I took a small scrap of white cardstock, die cut it, and ran it through my embossing folder. I then took all those elements and created my card. And then decided I need to add a small embellishment, which I grabbed from my embellishment stack.
