Butterfly Bear

Morning guys.  Today (before the time runs away with me!) I thought I'd share my other bear card with you that we made at The Glitter Pot a little while ago now!  He is of course by Penny Black and was coloured using Copics - can't get enough of colouring with these pens at the moment!  Just wish I had more time to experiment with them.  The flourish stamp is also by Penny Black and is called Scrolling Along.

I tried to keep the background quite muted for this card as I wanted all the focus to be on the bear but I couldn't resist using my Martha Stewart Floral Lace punch on the Dotted Swiss Bazzill cardstock!

Here's a closer look at the bear panel so that you can see I also did some subtle stamping around him using the Champagne Versamark inkpad along with a flower stamp that I took from a clear Penny Black stamp set before stamping the Scrolling Along stamp with a Brushed Corduroy Distress inkpad.

I hope you like him!!

All materials and products came from The Glitter Pot.

Hi Kay,
What a cute image. Like the muted colour scheme.

Not to worry Sandra - yours still looked great!

Jo - what are you like!! The Champagne Versamark has a subtle golden shimmer to it when it dries, so if you want to use this inkpad rather than the normal Versamark, use it for your tone-on-tone looks and allow it to air dry. Don't use an embossing powder over the top otherwise you don't see the shimmer! Hope this helps some!

Thanks Keryn - between Penny Black and Hero Arts I'm being kept quite poor!

Kim - the PB swirl is most definitely one of my favourites. I love it because it is so delicate.

Hey Pauline - hope you are well and are enjoying your weekend.
