Welcome to my crafty blog and another two-for-one post. This sweet teddy bear is from July 2018, and I have to confess is another stamp that’s not seen action until now! I need some more new baby cards in my stash, which seemed like the perfect theme.
I started by stamping the bear in black Archival ink and then coloured him with Spectrum Noir pencils, one with two shades of pink and the other with two blues. I fussy cut them both out.
I took a couple of A6 card blanks and masked off a panel on the front, although didn’t go all the way across. I brushed Distress Oxides through Clarity’s ‘dotty wave’ stencil onto the panel (‘broken china’ and ‘spun sugar’) then removed it and brushed more ink across the card. I added a little ‘picked raspberry’ to the pink one just to get a better tone on the panel.
All I then needed to do was add a bear to each card using foam pads, together with one of Clarity’s word sticker.
I’m definitely back in the CAS zone with these two! I’m sharing them with a couple of challenges – the theme at AAA Cards is ‘black, white & one colour’ and I took the layout from the sketch at TGIF challenges
