The other day and picked up myself a copy of a UK Card making and Papercraft magazine (June issue). Included in the magazine were some free clear stamps of Bentley Bear designed by Adam Pescott. I didn’t think that they would be very good, but nevertheless I decided to have a play around with these cute teddy bears and I am really happy with the results.
I used Gamsol to colour in the images. Gamsol is a GREAT product for making colouring in look soooo much better as it gets rid of the streaky lines by ‘melting’ the wax to create a watercolour effect. Check out how to use it here.
Supplies: White cardstock, patterned papers (no idea what brand as I have had these in my stash for ages!!), Derwent pencils, Gamsol, Tuxedo Back Memento Ink, foam dimensionals, Versa Colour ink (blue, purple and pink), ribbon (grosgrain and sheer ribbon), Creative Memories circle and oval cutters, Pebbles Inc “Happy Birthday” rub ons, Kaisercraft gems, tiny love heart stamp (as I made my own patterned background on the pink one), Glossy accents.
I made the balloons and the cake stand out by using some foam dots and on each of the noses I used Glossy accents to give it some shine. I didn’t have any blue ribbon that matched so I inked up some white sheer ribbon.
I hope you like them.
