Time for Another of MaryJo's Challenges


Sometimes these Challenges really are just that.....CHALLENGES! I wasn't at all sure what to do with this sketch. After thinking on it some, I came up with an entirely different idea, but somehow it evolved into this....isn't this little skunk cute? Honestly, I like him MUCH better than the real thing!!
This card was a lot of fun to make, but took me awhile to put together. And, of course, the Big Shot was used to create the tag and the circles.....lately, I seem to use the Big Shot in almost every card I create, or copy!
Although mostly current SU products were used in the making of this sample, there are a few items that are either retired or non-SU....so please read the recipe listed below carefully.
Can't wait to see what the others have done with this fun sketch. You can see the original sketch and the list of who participated, along with links to their blogs here.
Stamps: Pun Fun, Thank You Kindly, Three for You (little flower)*
Inks: Basic Black
CS: Whisper White, Orchid Opulence, Basic Black
Misc: Black Gingham Ribbon, Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol (non SU), Circle Nestabilities (non SU), Scallop Border Punch, Clear Crystal Brad from Pretties Kit, Glue Pen (non SU) and Dazzling Diamonds (to "color" in the white fur), Certainly Celery Marker (for stem), Lots of Tags Sizzlet, Big Shot, Trio Flower Punch, Textuz Plate/Backgrounds 1, Sanding Block (to highlight the textured background)
