Sending Smiles


Today's card is being entered into the following challenges:
Your Next Stamp Company Challenge #135 – Cute Critters – Join in the Fun!
Cardz4Galz Challenge# 118 Cute Animals
Simon Says: Anything Goes

I have been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. Have you had a chance to play along? I have and it's been great motivation. This is my 27th day of participating in the challenge.

For this card, I used colored pencils. As I don't have a lot of varying black shades of alcohol markers. To begin, I stamped the skunk on both a cardstock piece and Post-It. The Post-It then was fussy cut and became a mask for the ink blending I did in the background of this circle. I colored the little skunk in colored pencil and then went back over it with baby oil to blend out the color.

Paper: CTMH White Daisy
