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 #14

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Just Cute Bears which this time is a sketch by ME!



Our sponsors Cuddly Buddly have given us this gorgeous stamp as a prize.

I had a play with this card. I stamped the script text onto water colour paper and spritzed with watered down inkadinks. I punched out 10 flowers and edged with chalk inks then curved a little and layered with a spacer and pearl in the centre. I made another stamp script for the background and inked the edges and also the doily for the semi-circles.

Image: Popcorn bear from Crafters Companion
Papers: Basic Grey "Wisteria" from Secret Crafter
Medium: Promarkers & Inkadinks
Tools: EK Success retro flower punch
Others: Doily, spacer & pearl from stash
