Good afternoon! I had the chance over the last couple days to create a card using this adorable image from Lili of the Valley called Jenny Bear All Shopped Out. I just love those cute little teddy bears! I'm playing along with this week's Lili of the Valley challenge which is Non-traditional Colors and I'm also playing along with the current Wild Orchid Crafts challenge which is Ribbons and Bows. (You can click on the photo to enlarge it and see the details a little more.)
I recently discovered Echo Park papers and my patterned papers are from their Everybody Loves Christmas line. I love the fun colors! My image was colored with copic markers, of course. The colors I used were: E33, E35, E37, RV23, RV25, R20, BG11, BG13, E53, Y32, Y35, R29, YG67, W1, W3, colorless blender. After die cutting my image, I left it in the die and sponged some peach pastel ink around the edges. The gorgeous cherry blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Someone asked recently about how I created the bow on this card I posted last week. I used the Bow Easy to create the bow on this card and on the other one. Hope that helps!
Little one is starting to wake up so I am off. Have a great afternoon and thanks for stopping by!
