I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Just Cute Bears #9

This week's challenge on Just Cute Bears which is a sketch by Me!


This week you could win this stamp from our sponsor Cuddly Buddly



Here's my card.


I'm out of my comfort zone with this card as I hardly ever use orange but love the backing paper so much! I decided to watercolour the image as thought the softer effect would be better with the BP. Really have to practice more :(

Image: FF bear RAK from Cathy
Papers: Basic Grey - Green at Heart from Secret Crafter
Sentiment: Stamp unknown
Medium: Watercolours
Tools: MS Double loop PATP border, Woodware Daisy & Nellie's Choice Stamen punches
Others: Ribbon, pearls and brads from stash

This is gorgeous Jane. I'm not an orange person either but sometimes you just really love some DP and want to use it!

Thanks for a great sketch. I left my card pretty plain but this sketch allows you to add more bits and pieces if you want.
