Skunk in Love Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

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

To make this card I used stamps from super cute Jane's Doodles 'Stinks!' stamp set and coordinating Jane's Doodles 'Stinks' dies set, which is 50% off if you buy 'Stinks!' stamp set. This is a limited offer. Find more details on Jane's Doodles blog.

How I made this card...

I stamped a skunk on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the skunk and traced edges with black marker. I softened the skunk on a soft working mat using stylus ball.

I stamped another skunk on a white cardstock paper and using coordinating die from the set and Sizzix Big Shot, die 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. Lastly, I drew white highlights using white pigment ink and the image was finished. :o)

Next up was a background. I die cut tiny hearts on a white cardstock paper panel. I used only the panel and left die cut hearts for another project.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel directly on a black top folded card base, glued 3-D foam on the skunk and glued him on the card and my card was finished. :o)
