Little Bear

Hello! My card today is for two challenges, the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS and the Potluck Challenge at StampTV. Miss Boo is the featured stamper this week and this is the card I chose for inspiration. Participants were to change at least two things. I changed...

Different colors
Moved bow
Added sentiment on oval layer

The Potluck Challenge at StampTV this week was to make a feminine card. The challenge hostess, Deb, is collecting cards to send to the mother of Somer Thompson, the little girl that was murdered in Jacksonville, Fl a few weeks ago. Somer's favorite color is purple.

I used the bear from First Christmas, but I didn't want to make a Christmas card, so I used my Tuxedo Black Memento marker to ink up the bear, leaving the Santa hat un-inked. After stamping the image, I used the Memento marker to draw in the missing part of his head.

I used Copic markers to color, starting with E37.

Added E35.

Added E53.

Filled in with E51.

For the ears, face and feet, I started with V12.

Added V01.

Filled in with V000.

For the scarf, I started with V06.

Added V04 and filled in with V000.

Cut a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory and sponged with So Saffron in the center and Creamy Caramel around the edges.

I layered with Lavender Lace (SU) and Pure Luxury Ivory, cut using scallop square Nestabilities. The patterned paper is from the Springtime in Paris digital paper pack. I used a Martha Stewart lace border punch to cut the bottoms of my digi paper and Ivory layer.

Thanks for visiting. Have a happy day!
