Sweet Little Stinker...

The Craft Your Passion first challenge in August is Challenge #122 - Anything Goes! 

There are three different sponsors for this challenge: Doodle Pantry, Sassy Studio and Whoopsie Daisy,   although you don't have to use one of their images on your project. That will mean three prizes and what could be easier than "Anything Goes"??  I hope you come over (click HERE), see what the other DTs are creating for inspiration ...and consider joining the challenge!

I chose this digital image, "Quirky Skunk", from Doodle Pantry.  It comes in a set of six images that includes the main image , three sentiments and two digi papers.  I colored the image, edged the panel with Distress Inks, mounted it 3-D with foam tape on DP and finished with Copic colored Candi and a button with the sentiment.

I actually created two versions of this image - this one I used paper piecing for the first time.  But my chief bottle washer, car mechanic and art critic, (and oh, by the way, my husband) did not like a PINK skunk.  Whimsy is not in his vocabulary.  So the black skunk was the one submitted!  He was right (I hate when he is right!), it badly needed contrast.

This card should be eligible for the following
2 Sisters #103 - Anything Goes
Paper Play '12 Week 31- Layer It Up
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
Challenge Up Your Life - Anything Goes
Divas by Design #46 - Flowers

IMAGES:  The focal image is by Doodle Pantry.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from Ooh La La - "Summer Days" by My Minds Eye; base CS is from  my stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Candi is colored with the same Copics used in the Skunk so they will match; button is from my stash.
INKS: "Weathered Wood", "Tea Dye" and "Worn Lipstick" Distress Inks were used to edge the frames of the panels; the image is printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:
