Beary Sweet

Hello, Friends and Happy Monday. I hope all of you that are at CHA are enjoying all that crafting camaraderie and you’re not working or playing too hard. Personally I’d rather be in sunny California then going to the office of my corporate world this morning.

Craft Your Passion has a new challenge for you this week and our theme is “Beary Sweet.” So I made a  card with this cute little Bear couple digi from Crafty Sentiments, our sponsor this week.
My DPs are from BoBunny and cardstock is Bazzill. I machine stitched all of my pattern paper panels using a zigzag stitch for some added texture. I colored my image with Copics and used a wash cloth saturated with colorless blending solution for a soft teddy bear effect. My sentiment was cut from a Cuttlebug die and added to a stamped frame from Hero Arts.
I finished it off with a ribbon bow from my stash, flowers from WOC and leaves from my Martha Stewart punch.
These are the Copics I use to color my “Beary Sweet” image. I hope you can join us for this week’s challenge.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges.

Make It Monday – Anything Goes
One Stop Craft Challenge – Stitching, Faux or Real
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Pearls and Swirls
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time...

Hugz,

I am sat here in awe of this card (I think I'm suffering from card envy - rofl.) I love the way you've coloured these bears, it's something I'm still trying to master... and I'm certainl going to take your tip about the wash cloth. Smiles.

Thank you for joining us at Make it Monday this week.
