Mr Fox's Travels

Okay, I know this is a bit weird!

I did wonder if I'd be able to play along with CD Sunday  this week . The theme is 'Fox and friends' and I was pretty sure that I didn't have any CDs with a fox on them. although I did conduct a search to check. 

Short of ideas, I googled for images of foxes and brought up a few of foxes dressed as Victorian/Edwardian gentlemen.   ( Anyone remember Basil Brush?). 

I copied the photo from the internet and brought it into the My Craft Studio programme , where I digitally punched it into an oval. I added papers and images from MCS Tinkering with Steampunk and A Very Important Date.  I inked all the papers and added cogs, the title and 'tape' and a feather.

As well as CD Sunday, I'd like to enter:
Corrosive Challenges Dress me Up
Red Carpet Studio Bicentennial Man (metal cogs)
Pumpkin Spice Dress up
