Stinkin' Fabulous Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hello everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Stinkin' Fabulous Card:o)

I made this card for my dear niece Vanesa, my cousin's daughter, who turned 17 yesterday.

To make this card I used stamps from super cute Jane's Doodles 'Stinks!' stamp set and coordinating Jane's Doodles 'Stinks' dies set.

I stamped a skunk on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Black Soot. After drying, I fussy cut the skunk and traced edges with black marker.

I stamped another skunk on a white cardstock paper and using coordinating die from the set and Sizzix Big Shot, cut the skunk. I colored the skunk in black.

Then I glued together two skunks, watercolored one and die cut (black) one. I did this to make the image thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

Next up was a background. I lined up sentiment stamps on an acrylic block and stamped the sentiment over whole white cardstock paper panel. I used a grid on a Xcut self healing working mat to stamp straight.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I trimmed the panel a bit and glued it on a white top folded card base. I glued a vellum paper rectangle on the panel to tone down the background a bit. I glued 3-D foam squares on the skunk and placed the skunk on the vellum. As a finishing touch, I drew highlights on the skunk and embellished the card with violet enamel hearts. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 120 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")
