I See You, Shy Bear!

Welcome, Thursday! Today I thought I would share a card that I made using another one of my great new images from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store. This is one of the Shy Bears from I Brake For Stamps called Carousel Horse Shy Bear. I was so excited when Susana sent him to me!! Because, aside from the obvious reason that he is SO adorable, sweet and fun to color; my DS #1 is absolutely in love with carousels -- and he loves to stamp with me. So we stamped together yesterday and both colored in this shy little bear and his fancy carousel horse. :)

I stamped the main image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers. This is a beautifully detailed stamp so it really was fun to color. The shading of the image itself really helps you decide where to lay down color. After coloring I went through and added some highlighting with the white gel pen. One of my favorite coloring tools! Hard to see but there is Gold Glimmer Shimmerz Blingz on the saddle.

I cut the image panel using Labels 1 Nestabilities in my Cuttlebug. After I cut the red mat piece to size I used the largest corner rounder from EK Success to round off the corners to let the mat "flow" with the curly sides of the nesties. Patterned paper from DCWV Asian Stack, sentiment from {Little Paper Shop}.

If you have time, swing by the SCACD Papercraft Planet page and chat with us! There is still time to enter April's sketch with a twist challenge contest {details on PCP} for a chance to win a stamp of your choice from the store! Just upload your project to PCP with the keyword SCACD. Easy!! Here is mine if you are looking a little inspiration.

Oh yes, also there is a fabuloso new tutorial up on the SCACD store blog today - corner bookmarks by Aud. SO cool, I can't wait to make one of my own. Thanks for stopping by today!
