For my card, I began by stamping the raccoon image from Repeat Impressions onto a piece of Georgia Pacific cardstock with Marvy black dye ink. I colored the image with Copic markers, and then masked the entire image with a Post-It note. Also, using a Nestabilities circle die, I masked a circle for the moon with a Post-It note as well.
I brayered SeaShells Cool Peri dye, and Vivid Lavender dye onto the paper about two-thirds of the way down the paper. I went back in and sponged Distress Ink Faded Jeans along the top of the paper. I removed the circle mask. Then, I masked a line for the water. I sponged Whispers Savoy Green dye onto the paper around where the raccoon was to form the grassy field. I then added some lines for grass with various Prismacolor pencils. Then, I removed the water's mask, and sponged Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Adirondack Stonewashed dye ink to make the water.
I lightly reverse stamped the raccoon image into the water with Versafine Onyx Black. Once I had that reflection outline, I then sponged some Brilliance Moonlight White over the raccoon reflection.
I framed the card with black and gray cardstock, and added sheer white ribbon.

Gorgeous!! I love that reflection technique, and the ribbon on the right! I love that this challenge gives everyone a glimpse into our own lives and spaces, and I'm so thankful that the raccoons are not actually in your spaces - teeheeeeee!!! I'm so glad you could play along today!!
