Skunk love

     Well, this is my last Valentine card make this year.  I know I'm dating myself, but one of my favorite cartoons as a kid was Bugs Bunny  It was actually a collection of characters including one that looked a lot like this fellow.  Pepe Lepew was the ultimate Don Juan  This image is one of several included in the clear stamps Art Impressions stamp set In the Air
     This card will be going to a dear friend who collects skunks.  She has hundreds of these stinky little critters.  For the background I stamped a piece of vellum with small hearts and embossed in white so it wouldn't be so plain.  The sentiment is also embossed.

Copics Used:
skunk NI, N3, N5, N7, R20, R30
balloon R32, R35, R37, R43, RV13, RV14
blue shading and a little other shading done with Prismacolor pencils
