I created this card with the "Stinkin Cute" stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I am just in love with this little skunk! Of course, stamping him on everything by himself made me a little sad that he was all alone. He must be lonely, right?
So, I decided to give him a friend. I stamped him on some watercolor paper so I could use my watercolor pencils to color him in. Then, I did some mirror stamping to create the flipped image.
If you haven't tried mirror stamping, you should. Its a really awesome way to get more out of your stamps. Look it up on YouTube.
Anyway, after I had both our skunks stamped and colored, I cut them out, chomped the corners, and adhered them to some fun background paper. Then I stamped the sentiment in black and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Last but not least, I added a white satin bow.
Since this week's Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is featuring animals, this was the perfect card to link to their blog today.
