Raccoon in Love Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #136 Mid Inspiration)

http://kittybeedesigns.blogspot.com/

Hi everyone! :o)


Today I'm sharing a mid-inspiration project for an ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #136 - Love & Valentines.


Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy's Place.


And here's my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Raccoon in Love Card. :o)


For my card I used a SUPER CUTE Kitty Bee Designs 'Heart Strings Raccoon' digital image. Isn't he ADORABLE!!! :o)


How I made my card....

First I made a layout on my computer. Then I printed the raccoon three times: one directly on a  white cardstock paper and two on a watercolor paper (I printed one just in case if I mess something... I did). I left images to dry couple hours.

I prepared the card base first. I folded in half the white cardstock paper and got the card base. Then I colored the raccoon with black marker.

Then I colored the raccoon printed on the watercolor paper in watercolor technique using Stabilo Pens (Markers). As I managed to smear raccoon's muzzle, I colored another muzzle on the image I had printed just in case. :o)

After drying, I fussy cut all pieces, traced edges with black marker, softened pieces on a soft working mat using stylus ball and glued all pieces over the image colored in black on the card base.

For a sentiment I decided to hand letter word love. I didn't like how I connected the sentiment and a string, so I decided to cover that with another heart. I watercolored the heart, fussy cut it, traced edges, softened it and glued it over the part where I connected the sentiment and the string. :o)

As a finishing touch I punched two opposite corners of the card using a rounded corner paper puncher and drew white highlights using white pigment ink. :o)

Valentine Monster Card

Hi everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!! :o)

This is my second post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.


Today I want to share with you this Valentine Monster Card. :o)


I made this card for my sweetheart. 

To make this card I used super adorable 'Monster the One and Only' freebie digital image from Goebie Design. :o)


How I made my card...

I made a layout on my computer and printed the image directly on a Kraft cardstock card base. I left it aside for an hour to let ink dry completely to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the image with various colored pencils.

Then I colored monster's eyes, teeth and toes and drew white highlights with a white pigment ink.

As a finishing touch, I rounded three corners with a rounded corner paper puncher and my card was finished. :o)
