Drips and Drops.... the new theme over at the Country View Crafts Challenge. Lots of colourful, watery drips and drops on this one......
Started off by stamping my little foxy character (Viva Las VegasStamps) onto a piece of white card. Then using some Pebeo Drawing Gum (masking fluid which is water soluble so washes out of your brush completely) I masked off the fox, I also drew a few fine lines with the gum using the end of the brush handle and then added a few drops.... 
Then I added a few drops of AquaTints to my glass mat and spritzed well with I used AquaTints but you could just as easily squish your Distress Ink Pads onto your glass mat and use them...
Then I picked up the colour onto my stamped and masked piece of card. Although some colour will sit on the dried masking fluid it won't permeate through to the paper...
Before removing the masking I added a bit of stencilling using a Tim Holtz layering stencil. Then I simply rubbed of the masking with my finger and then painted the little fox.  To finish I mounted it all onto a card blank and added a couple of stamped words.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop by the Country View challenge site to join in the fun,
