It's time for another fun theme at Allsorts challenge and this week Kath picked the theme of
"Bears - Any Type of Bears".
For today's card I used a rubber stamp by Lili of the Valley. Unfortunately this stamp is no longer available.
LOTV stamp (old, sorry no link) // Sweet Wishes by Penny Black // Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die // Zig Clean Color Markers // Zig Detailer Brush // Bristol Vellum Paper // Versafine Onyx Ink // Clear Embossing Powder // Scotch ATG Glue Gun // Neenah Linen Cardstock
I heat embossed the image on Bristol Vellum Paper using Versafine Onyx Ink and clear embossing powder. Coloring was done with Zig Clean Color markers and my Zig Detailer brush. As you can see the card is CAS. I just added a small strip of patterned paper from my stash, heat embossed the image and finished off with a polka dotted bow. The card front was cut out using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die and then mounted on a white Neenah Linen Cardstock base. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Sweet Wishes, also heat embossed.
A little close up ...
I know my coloring is pretty simple, but as much as I enjoy sitting there and spending time coloring, I just don't have the time for a long coloring session which is the reason why I love these Zig markers. I'm pretty sure this image was colored in about 10 minutes or less.
We would LOVE for you to join us this week at Allsorts challenge! This week we have this cute stamp by Penny Black to give away to one very lucky participant!
