Bear Hug

(If you've come to see the OCL Spotlight Set of the Week, scroll down to the next blog post.)



Oh my gosh, I LOVE this sweet bear! He's a digital image from the Mini Bears and Birds set at Angels Landing.

The bear is printed on white CS from the computer, colored with Copics, and sponged with Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery inks. I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz in that pink/peach area around his nose and mouth, and added a tiny bit to the centers of the ears. The white scalloped mat is up on foam tape. The layout is SCS Sketch 237 from last Wednesday.

Here's the inside of the card. The "Need a Hug?" sentiment is also from the Mini Bears and Birds set. The tag and white panel are sponged with Bashful Blue ink. The white panel was embossed with the Elegant Bouquet texture plate from SU.

Oh, I just want to hug your card Denise! I love the paper you used! You've sold me on that new SU suede color! That DP is very cool too. Is that something new too? Love the embossing you did on the inside of the card too! We used that embossing folder for several cards at a stamp camp this weekend, but it was genious to use it for a corner embellishment. Very, very sweet!!!
