{KKS} Woodland Friends

I am so excited about today's card for the Kraftin' Kimmie previews! We have a great new set by one of our newest artists, Thais Narsisco, called Woodland Friends. We are also showing off the 3rd (yes, that's right!) set from Cheryl today, called Good Sports.


Now, I have to confess to you the reason why today's card excites me so much: I have NO confidence or idea what to do when it comes to colouring three main subjects: flowers, trees and animals.  This image has two of those things. I was skeered ;)
Secondly, I really am not overly clear on the exact colourings of a racoon. You RARELY see them where I live, so my experience is mostly from cartoons (LOL! Remember the show 'The Racoons'???) I'll admit that I googled 'racoon images' and went from there with my image :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE how he turned out!!! I added a bit of pastel pencils at the end to provide some deeper shades, and added glaze pen to the apples and mushrooms. I added some grass in there as well.

I added some natural jute twine and a red button, and the border die is by MFT. I sponged the edges and machine stitched in a cream thread.
