UR Foxy - Life in the Forest Card

Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing Mommas out there!  I'm celebrating with TWO Moms today, both my Mom and my sister-in-law.  We've got a big brunch planned with cinnamon buns, french toast, bacon, eggs, bagels, fruit salad…you know, all the good stuff!  It's going to be a great day!  

Today's card is one I made last week when my new Blendabilities alcohol markers arrived.  Since I have no prior experience with alcohol markers it's been a week of trial and error as I learn more and more about them.  
I learned the most while colouring this little fox.  Just because the markers come in a package of three doesn't mean you can ONLY use those three markers together.  On the fox I used light cherry cobbler, all of the pumpkin pie markers, and even a skin tone.  I think this drastic blending from dark to light really makes this fox foxy.  ;)  I also really love how the wood frame on my card turned out.  I used a dark brown from the skin tone collection to highlight the woodgrain, blended in some dark pumpkin pie, and then added some bleached out spots using the colour lifter.
