Hello friends!! Yay! Welcome to June! I am hoping that this month will be a bit more dry than what it has been lately. I’m growing tired of flash floods! Rain vibes sent to those that need it too!
Today starts a brand new monthly challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies as well! So please hop on over there and play along with us! It’s an easy challenge! All you have to do is add a critter somewhere on your project! That’s it!
So here’s what I’ve made for the challenge:
Isn’t he a cutie? Now, I’ve never seen a teddy bear on a mushroom before, but they look so happy together, so I think it works! 🙂 Our sponsor for this challenge is Rick ST Dennis and we were provided some images to use. I’ve used one of the images from the 2 Bearii Kawaii digital stamp set. (click on the link to see both images included.)
After coloring him up, I’ve used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies to cut him out with and then I’ve used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and an ink blending tool to go around the edges with it. I also used this ink and tool to sponged some clouds in the background on a white piece that was cut with another Stitched Rectangle die. I thought it would be fun to add some splatters, so I carefully covered up the image and added some splatters with the same distress ink that was watered down and splattered both the cloud background and image panel.
For the bottom of the card, I cut a piece of green card stock with the LF Mushroom Border die. I also used this die set to cut out the mushrooms with some vanilla and red cardstock. I white heat embossed the punny sentiment at the bottom of the grass border from the LF Oh Gnome stamp set. I’ve attached these borders to the bottom of my cloud panel and lined it up to cut it out again with the stiched rectangle die so that it matched with the background of the card.
I then added some twine around the cloud panel and then attached this piece over top of a white top folding A2 sized card base. Lastly, I took some foam tape and added it to the image panel and then attached the twine bow with the chipboard heart in the center of the bow.
Here’s a closer view of the image details. I’ve colored the image with Copic markers and then went over the bear’s bow with a glitter brush pen. The white dots on the mushroom was covered with some Nuvo Glitter Drops. For a bit more personality, I have decided to take a black marker and make dots in the center of the eyes on both the mushroom and the teddy bear. I’ve also added some white dots on the teddy bear’s cheeks.
I have to say that this card was so fun to put together! I hope you have enjoyed it too! Thanks so much for stopping in today! Be sure to stop by the 2 Crafy Critter Crazies Challenge blog and check out the rest of the inspiration from the design team!
