Serendipity's First February Challenge!

For this months first challenge we were given a sketch! This one to be exact:

Then I took it and flipped it on its side! This game me a better space for me to work with this adorable little skunk! (1203QCL) I stamped and colored him in with copic markers, layered and matted him up with Farm Fresh papers from October Afternoon! I then thought a little bling would really pick it up but didn't have any rhinestones that really matched? Cure color the plain rhinestones with copics to match!

After staring at this card for a couple weeks I finally figured out what was bugging me about it.. I had colored the background peach because I thought the white was too stark, but by mistake I had colored in part of the tail that should have stayed white? What to do what to do? Again copics to the rescue.. I used my colorless blender to push the offending peach ink back through the paper.. now it didn't completely disappear but with lots of work and a little gray for cover, I think the fix looks pretty good! What do you think?

OHH my goodness I never noticed it when you showed me when you finished it. I see what you mean. I like it better now that his tail is white. You are so good! I still think that skunk is just adorable!
