YNS Fun Friday: Color Challenge # 14

Hello everyone, Happy Friday!! I have a card to share with you all for the new Fun Friday challenge up over on the YNS blog. Normally, I always end up using the sketch, so I decided to switch things up and use the Color Challenge photo instead.
I merged my two critters by stamping my porcupine first and then masking off and stamping over with the fox. I stamped them on Crafters Companion kraft cardstock. I colored my images using both my Spectrum Noir Markers & Pencils.
Pattern Paper: Echo Park
Enamel Dots: DoodleBug Designs

YNS items used:
