Hey, Retro Foxy

This month I've learned that I find it very hard to be creative when I'm not allowed to make a mess. We done dozens of showings of our home, and my stamp room has been spotless each time...and the way it's stayed spotless is me staying out of the ink. No paper has been cut. No flowers glittered. I need to sell my house before my mind explodes with undeveloped ideas!! This week we thought that we'd sold the house, and my team was coming over for one last in person meeting, so I whipped out my February SOTM as fast as I could find it. That's a lot harder for me than my usual systems of everything I'm using right now is on my desk. Ahem...Thanks goodness the new RetroSketches was perfect for my project!
In any case, it was so much fun to ink up this adorable little fox. It's my favorite Stamp Of The Month from the new catalog going live on February first. I added wiggly eyes (of course), and a little dab of puff paint for his nose. I used my Spellbinders nesting circles to cut the circles for my focal point. I dotted around the circle with a fine tipped sharpie pen, and finished him off with a glitter gem and some washi tape. The background is a sneak peek of a new cardstock coming in February. One side is a printed pattern and the other is the same pattern in an emboss resist for inking!

I'm linking this cutie up to the Heart 2 Heart Spotlight Challenge. Golly that felt good!

I feel your pain, when we were selling our house, my husband had already relocated due to starting a new job so I was home alone, no kids or anyone around and yet I had to keep the scrap room clean, so hard to do and still get to play. Good luck with selling your house and what a great card, such a cute little guy and I love your take on the sketch! Thanks for playing along with H2H challenges!
