Fall Fox

The fall scene of this card seems ironic to post today, when I look out my window and see snow.  But, I made it a few days ago and then things looked like fall and not winter.  
This card also applies for the A Muse Lounge Challenge!  I drew the ground in by hand, masked the sky and fox off, and used a sponge dauber to color/texture the ground as well as edging the scene in the same ink, and then added the copper Stickles right under the ground line.  I got out my Prisma colored pencils for the fox, leaves and trees.  The leaves actually have a hint of green at the base of each of them, but I think it's a little hard to see in the picture.  I forget about these pencils sometimes because I use my Copic markers so much.  But, the pencils really can give such a cool look and they blend in different ways than the Copic markers.
