Hands Clean Mask On

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a fun card I created with Sassy & Crafty stamps.  As soon as I saw this Ready Raccoon set, I knew I had to have it! This surly little guy makes me smile.

If things stay constant on the virus front, the boys are just over a week away from heading off to in-person school two days a week. So I made this fun card for their super awesome teacher.  I thought she'd get a kick out of it, with the hands clean, mask on sentiment. I colored the raccoon with Copic markers, then fussy cut.

I created the background panel using the Web Stencil and distress oxide inks, first doing a light coat of all the colors all over the page, then adding the stencil and going over each color again with a heavier hand for a tone on tone look.  When I was done, I spritzed my stencil with water and then placed a piece of white cardstock over it to soak up the excess ink and get a "ghost" print.  I used this for the background behind the raccoon, matting with black, then adding a sentiment from Storms Do Not Last across the card.  I then finished with some die cut numbers from a Cuttlebug die set I rediscovered in the closet from the dawn of time. I cut them from black cardstock, then coated with watermark ink and embossed with black sparkle embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend!
