The Card Concept #40 -- Take 2

Today, I have three more cards to share that I made for 


I had so much fun creating my original cards for the challenge
that I just wanted to keep making cards using adorable Forest Friends!

This time, I chose the fox and raccoon from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos to play with.

First up, the fox...

For all three cards, I used some SSS white woodgrain cardstock as my background.
I stamped the wreath from PTI's Twig Wreath onto its coordinating diecut
in stamper's select white.

I stamped the fox in dark chocolate ink.
I used a paint brush dipped in water and terracotta tile ink that I pressed onto an acrylic block.

Next is the raccoon.

To colour him in, I pressed a dark grey ink onto my acrylic block 
and mixed in some water with a paintbrush.
I started with the area around his eyes, his pawns his stripes on his tail,
then, I added more water to colour in the rest of him.
