Art Impressions Challenge - Use Newspaper

This week's Art Impressions Blog challenge is use newspaper.  I'm featuring this adorable raccoon from the Furries TF (Sku#4208) set. I dig his expression!  I made the sentiment on my computer - it just fit.

I've been watching YouTube videos on collages and layering design papers - why not newspaper?! :o)  I ripped newspaper into a bunch of different size pieces and overlapped them onto an A2 size piece of cardstock.

While it was drying, I colored  this cutie pie raccoon with my Spectrum Noir Markers. For tips on coloring with Spectrum Noir Markers, visit the Spectrum Noir Blog.

After my background layer dried, I trimmed it down to fit the base card. I used a white gel pen to brighten his eyes and give highlight to his tail.
