Hello! Sorry for the lack of posting last week. We just got back from vacation and I only had one card pre made that I could schedule while I was away. I'm getting back in the groove of things and catching up on emails. I took a little time this morning to make a card for the Try a New Technique Challenge at SCS. The challenge was to use twine. I used images from my new set, Mountain Wilderness.

To start, I stamped the big bear with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, filling in with E53.

I added E35.

Added E37.

Added E59.

Added E49.  After coloring, I cut out the bear.

I cut an oval using my Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities, then sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

Sponged Memento Rich Cocoa.

Sponged Memento Cantaloupe.

I stamped the trees, using Ranger Distress Forest Moss, but stamped off once on scratch paper first to make a lighter page.

Colored in the rocks with N3.

Added shading with N5.

Then deeper shading with N7.

Used W3 to add a shadow below the rocks.

I applied Scor-tape to a piece of Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus card stock, so my twine would have something to stick to. Then I wrapped the twine around it several times.

I added the vertical sentiment, stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink and adhered the bear with Pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
