TSG58 - Blue Bear




I don't know why this little guy reminds me of the Care Bears, but he does so I made him blue like the Champ Bear that my son owns :) I wanted to play along with the Trendsetters for Jodi's sketch challenge over at the There She Goes blog for TSG58 and this is what I came up with...




As you can see, I altered the shape from a rectangle to a square 4 1/4" note card and filled it up with bear hug goodness. The bear itself is three layers high and has some cheery sparkles for accents, and it's quite subtle really :)



This little fellow has been water coloured with my tombow markers and then placed on a sponged background. I have added texture to all of the layers of designer papers for fun and because I'm a texture kind of gal ;P You have probably noticed by now that the card base is Baja Breeze instead of my traditional white...what can I say? I'm expanding my horizons ;) lol


*** Just a little note aside of the card today. Angela Thomas (Jellybean74 @ SCS) and myself are in the early planning stages of putting together an SCS Stamping Get Together later in the summer on Vancouver Island and would like to extend the invite to not only local stampers, but to anyone from the US who can make it as well. If you are interested in attending something like this, please let us know! We have started a thread at SCS and are looking for suggestions, dates that would work for everyone, volunteers for swaps, etc.

We have never put on something like this before but we would love to meet some of our SCS friends so jump on in and let us know what you think and we will see if we can make it work! Let's get us together girls :D ***

For months your blog e-mail updates have come to me now. I love your coloring and paper choices. My question to you is.......what stitch length do you use on your cards and do you have a secret on how you get your circles and corners so beautifully even (or is it just lots of practice?.

How exciting. You and Angela are putting together a get together. I think I might be able to do that. That might be obtainable for me. This reminds me of that card bear too with the rainbow belly. I'm with ya Kim. Sweet card.
