Raccoon Shadow

It's Monday! What better way is there to make a Monday more bearable, than with a Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions? This week’s SOTW is "Raccoon" (4219-J). The SOTW is available exclusively to Repeat Impressions blog readers at 50% OFF with the special discount code from Monday, July 30 to Sunday, August 5. To get the discount code and more information about the SOTW, please go to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.

For my card, I began by stamping the raccoon onto a piece of Georgia Pacific cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers, and then masked the entire image with a Post-It note. Also, using a Nestabilities circle die, I masked a circle for the moon with a Post-It note as well.  I brayered SeaShells Cool Peri dye, and Vivid Lavender dye onto the paper about two-thirds of the way down the paper. I went back in and sponged Distress Ink Faded Jeans along the top of the paper.  I removed the circle mask.  Then, I masked a line for the water.  I sponged Whispers Savoy Green dye onto the paper around where the raccoon was to form the grassy field.  I then added some lines for grass with various Prismacolor pencils.  Then, I removed the water's mask, and sponged Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Adirondack Stonewashed dye ink to make the water.  I reverse lightly stamped the raccoon image into the water with Versafine Onyx Black.  Once I had that reflection outline, I then sponged some Brillance Moonlight White over the raccoon reflection. 

I framed the card with black and gray cardstock, and added sheer white ribbon.

I got the idea for this card from one of my favorite books from when I was a child:  Little Raccoon and the Thing in the Pool, by Lilian Moore.
