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

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)
