Just a quick post today as I have lots of DT work to get done before I go on my hols to Spain. We are off out to a friend's 60th Birthday Party tomorrow evening and I wanted to make him a special card but not one of the usual type with a big 60 on the front!! I think he'll like it and particularly appreciate that it was created especially for him!
I used this lovely Popcorn Bear Party Time stamp set from Crafters' Companion. It is a very big stamp so I made a slightly larger card than I usually do. He's coloured with ProMarkers with some Glossy Accents added to the ribbons, his eyes and nose. As the image is so big, not much of the background papers show, these are from the new Hampstead pack by Papermania. I cut out a few flowers with Marianne Designs dies from white card which I then coloured with Promarkers to exactly match the colours I used on the image. I layered these up and finished with a gold half bead. A little faux stitching around the edges of the image layer and that was the card finished! This week on Just Cute Bears challenge #23 has an open theme and allows us to do anything we want on our projects so long as we have a cute bear on it - I think this card fits the bill nicely, so I shall be entering it this week.
That's it from me today, Tilly is asking to go out for walkies so we are off out into the fresh air for a while. Thanks for visiting, I do hope you'll come back again soon.
