Hi Everyone, for today's card, I've fallen slightly off the SU waggon and used some bear stamps that I had forgotten about until I found them stuffed in a drawer while tidying up my study a few weeks ago.
Anyway, I will be entering it into two challenges,
The first is Try Stampin' on Tuesday where they have this sketch,
and, Friday Mash Up where they want a project for a Baby, and/ or, use the colours from the photo
( Real Red, So Saffron, Pool Party, and Neutral )
I've mixed all three to make this card
I first stamped the bears ( named Bubble and Squeak ) onto white card with Black Archival ink, and coloured them with a brown SU Write Marker, spreading the ink with an Aqua painter. The present holding bear stamp is actually holding up a flower, but I stamped a present first, masked it with a Post It, and then stamped the bear under it so it looks like it is supposed to have a gift in its paws. Once dry, these were layered onto red card, and then onto some Saffron card that was embossed with dots and stuck onto a white card base. The BABY letters and present were coloured using Write markers.
Card = So Saffron, Real Red, White card and base FMS
Stamps = Daisy and Dandelion, Alphabet Squares FMS, and Verve sentiment
Inks = Real Red, Pool Party, So Saffron, and Crumb Cake
Tools = Big Shot, Dots EF, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = Post It, Ribbon, and 3D pads
My Sister, Cassy, is due to have her first baby in April, so this card may come in handy ( if she doesn't see it on my blog that is! ). I will be an Aunt again for the third time, and I'm quite excited to find out whether it'll be a boy or girl!........Not long to go now Cass!!
Well I hope you've all had a good weekend, as mine was spent not far from the bathroom with an upset stomach ( hope that's not too much information? ). I am feeling slightly better today, but I'm just a bit tired.
Be back soon
