Stinkin Cute

I'm getting ready for my Sunday bike ride.  I'm headed up Mt. Eden and Mt. Winery, so need a few minutes to get into the mental state of climbing hills.  Let's see if I can get closer to my personal best time--though trying a new shifting strategy to see if what my husband and brother say works for me.  We'll see!

I worked on this card a few days ago, and just now having the time to take a photo and post.

I used the Simon Says Stamps "Stinkin Cute" set.  I've had this set for awhile now and have been dying to use it.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it, but finally came up with this.  I used a circle stencil to color the background very lightly with distressed ink.  I then popped up the background and the little skunk after coloring it with copic markers and added a little Wink of Stella to the heart.

I'm entering it into two challenges:  1) Addicted to CAS which you can see the code word is animal, 2) Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge, where the technique is using a stencil.
