In December I played along on a challenge on the over at Task for Two Tuesday Challenge Blog. I was ever so happy when I won with my Noel Robin card. As it was Christmas, Birka gave away stamp sets she designed. She also has them as freebies on her blog. They really are very cute!
A few days ago she sent me my chosen stamp set alsong with a lovely handmade card. Off course, I used my newly acquired stamp immediately to create a Thank You card, which I also want to show here. So thank you again Birka. I love the bear!!
I heat embossed the bear in the corner and then masked him off. Then I stamped the background using the Jero Arts Pool to Navy ink pad. I also ink blended around the bear very lightly in evergreen bough Distress ink, to make him stand out more.
Using very light copics, I coloured the image and went over the eye with a black gel pen.
The main sentiment I cut with Hero Arts die and the subsentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set. I thought it went really well with the overall card.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
