Bunch of Bears ...

Good afternoon. Today I have an adorable water-colored card to share with you featuring products from Rubbernecker Stamps.

I used my Zig Clean Color Markers again, and this time colored the adorable Bunch of Bears (1045). I stamped the image on Strathmore Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. I put the ink I wanted to work with on my pallet, pulled the colors with a paintbrush and water to paint my image. This image was so much FUN to work with. Once dry I cut it out using one of the Nested Rectangle Stitch Dies (5007D), and layered it on my blue stitched mat.

The background/DP was created by me using RN Watercolor Paper, Ken Oliver Color Burst Brights, and a Mini Spray Bottle which I then cut out with one of the Stitched Dies. Once all of the layers were put together I added the sentiment from the Best Friends Etc. Set (3032). I cut the sentiment apart for my design, and adhered it with 3D Foam Squares.

My design for today's card was inspired by a Tuesday Morning Sketch (shown below) from August.

Hi Ruza, I love the way you've combined the sketch with our challenge. Great birthday card. Great colouring of those adorable bear images. The background which you've created with your inks and and spray bottle is amazing and adds to the festive feel of the card. Love the way you've used stitched border dies on both the image piece and background piece. Great card! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
