I have been working on a cute little bear card this afternoon and I am really happy with the results. The bear is Bentley Bear designed by Adam Pescott and it came as a freebie set of cling stamps with the Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine a while back. I had used most of the stamps and posted them here but I didn’t get around to using this little cutie until today. I thought it would be great as a new baby card. Seeing how the colours I have used are pink, white and brown (Bentley is brown) I decided to enter it in as my second card to the Scrapbook Boutique October Colour Challenge as well.
I am really pleased with how the flowers and bow worked out – thanks to Jennifer McGuire’s simple video instruction over at The Hero Arts Blog (it is on the end of her video about inking ribbon). I have also never used lace before – but see it on so many other beautiful cards, I thought it was high time I tried!!
