I won't bore you with my being so very busy as it is not new to you to read. But I will say this: "I'm NOT bored". When you only hope a day had more than 24 hours in it, is an understatement for me. But the question remains, how much more would a day be enough? LOL I have no number to suggest as it is never the same but at some point we need the sleep right?
So between appointments, gardening, errands, cleaning and classes, I noticed that the month of March is almost over and Spring has already Sprung in its cute official way as well. What's not to love about it?? Some of you have already had more than enough of the white stuff and the extreme cold Winter you had. So I hope Spring means much more to you this time around, go out and enjoy the warmer temps. I try to do it too.
So for today I thought I should show you my latest card that was a success. Sorry I couldn't post it sooner, time is not always on my side but, it's here now. I hope you can find some inspiration through this Decoupage whimsical bear card.
Many techniques are involved in this card but goes to show how a whimsical image can come to life when used in that way.
Needed for this card: A Stamp by Judith Bear stamp S-17, and coffee mug stamp D-135. 2 oval die cuts that are about ½ inch distance in between. Embossing folder basket weave pattern (Lifestyle Crafts) or any embossing folder can do for this. Impression Obsession dies Spiral roses DIE042-I, the mini tulips DIE147-A, the mini leaves DIE150-D, leafy branch DIE055-N and Sprigs DIE112-D. Cheery Lynn’s Baby’s breath Trio die B364.
Rangers Glossy Accents, Black Micron or Copic pen 002 or 003 will do (very fine tip). Foam dots or strips, double sided tape, fast grab tacky glue, glue dots etc. “Copic R27 red, Y13 Lemon Yellow and E27 Africano”, YG06 Yellowish Green or water based markers will also do the trick.
Inks used are: Memento Summer Sky, Tim Holtz Distress Inks Black Soot, Rusty Hinge, Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo. 1 Sponge Dauber for each color used.
This bear which is purchased as a full sized bear, was reduced to be used in a basket weave frame setting that would look totally adorable with flowers, I think I have accomplished the look I was in for.
The decoupaged bear (3 layers on this one) was fun to make and challenge myself by adding a Springlike feel to it. I hope you enjoyed this card. Have a fun weekend everyone.
I am so thrilled you took some of your time to come in and have a peek at my latest card. Comments are always something I appreciate more than you will ever know. I also try and reply to comments if not on here, by email because you all matter to me.
Happy Happy Day!
