Teddy Bear's Picnic

well I've been meaning to post for a few days now but, what with one thing and another, I just haven't got around to here I am at 10.30 pm, determined to get a post on!

This is a card that I made for Stamp Addicts, using some of their lovely bear stamps. They each come separately, but I think that they go beautifully together.

I had some lovely Nitwits digital paper, which I thought looked a bit like a picnic blanket and hence this little card idea was born.

As you can see, I have used my staple...the Nitwits sky paper once again, to make the back of the easel, but I have resolved to myself that I really must make an effort to do my own sky on some of my images as I have watched a tutorial on sponging clouds using distress inks and I really want to have a go now!!

Anyway, back to this card. I have coloured the bears 'flat' style with my promarkers and cut them out so that they can be used as the stoppers for the easel.

That's all I can say about this one really, other than I would like to enter the following challenges:

Make it Monday
Stamping Sensations - Fur and Feathers
Cutie Pie Challenge - Pretty Pastels
I Love Promarkers - 4 legged friends
Stamp n Doodle - Anything Goes

That's all for me today.

Thanks for stopping by.
