Well it's that time of the week again....who pinched the week! only mean's it's time for another challenge over at Just Cute Bears...this week we have a fabby sketch for you to follow by one of my fellow teamies Helen...i loved working with this,thanks Helen.
We've also got a sponsor this week "MELJEN DESIGNS" lucky winner will win 3 bear images...can i enter..LOL.
For my card i've used a Forever Friends stamp from the "Celebration set"...coloured using Promarkers and alittle shading with Prisma's...not really much colouring on this one...his hat i've paper pieced to match the backing paper,which is K & Co "Hopscotch"...not sure why but i love this paper pad.
The sentiment is from the Papermania Clare Curd's Sentiments set.
You can see i've used an old CD for the circle part of the sketch...that wasn't what i originally planned...i'd reached for the CD to use as a template to cut round...but when i layed it down i had a light blub put myself througth cutting out when i can use the CD as it is...and i think it works ok,i've never used one on a card before but hey there's a first time for everything!...and really that's how the sentiment and the music note embellishments came about.The notes were printed off the computer and coloured with a black Copic marker.
Ribbon and black pearls from stash mountain!
Well that's about it folks...would just like to thank everyone who joined us on the challenge last week,as always you all made some fabby cards/projects and we hope to see you all again this week...there's really only one rule you need to include Just One Cute Bear!
Hope you all have a lovely day
Take care
