Birthday Bear Hugs

MFTWSC242 cropped

I colored this sweet bear a few days ago, and now found a great use for him on this card using the current sketch #242 from My Favorite Things this week!  The bear and sentiment are from the darling Birdie Brown Birthday Bears stamp set, and was cut with the matching Die-Namics.

For the background panel, which was die-cut with the Blueprints 15 Die-Namics, I stamped a piece of watercolor card stock with the BG Grid background in Versamark ink, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.  I used a piece of acetate and some Summer Splash dye ink to do some ink smooshing on the background.  The sketch this week calls for an oval in the center, and since I didn’t want to cover up my inky background, I die-cut a vellum oval.  I added a sentiment from the Birthday Bears stamp set on an Orange Fizz card stock flag that was cut with Blueprints 2 Die-Namics.  I accented with a few Sparkling Clear sequins, and adhered everything to a Lemon Chiffon card stock base.

I’m also entering my card in the current Tag You’re It challenge #28.



Happy Friday!  Thanks for stopping by today!

I like that you colored the bear as a polar bear and used water color resist to create an icy looking background. Thanks for joining us at Tag You're It! Challenge.
