Hello! Today I'm sharing a card I made for the new Inky Paws Challenge over at Newton's Nook Designs! #10 is all about adding a texture- wood, cork, or metal. I chose to feature wood on mine! Here is what I made:
I pulled out the adorable Sweetheart Tails set for this card and stamped that cute raccoon on a piece of watercolor paper. I used a mix of watercolors and residual inks to paint him in. I was going for a fresh, clean look so I kept it simple, coloring some grass underneath him along with a little yellow flower. I did a faint blue wash around him as well but it turned out too light to see!
I used my Woodgrain Cottage embossing folder by Teresa Collins for Craftwell to texturize my Soft Sky card front. I added a strip of patterned paper from the Hey Kid collection by Fancy Pants and then added my stamped panel over the top of it. To finish it off, I stamped my sentiment onto a wooden speech bubble by Stampin' Up!
The placement for everything was inspired by Retro Sketches #113.
I'm so glad I got to play along with this week's challenge! It's always fun to add texture, right? :)
Well, I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm ready for it- lol! I'm even happier that we have an extra day! Hopefully I can fit in some fun crafty time!
