The Pink Elephant Challenge #29









Hello everyone;
Well it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post....I took a much needed rest. We have had some really nice weather lately, so I thought I better take advantage of it while it lasts.

I made this card for The Pink Elephant challenge. The challenge this week is a sketch. Don't ya love it when half the work is done for us...lol!!
The image I have used is "Popcorn the Bear"...."Birthday Hugs".



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my white Inkssentials pen for the highlights. I embossed and painted the bow and tag again, cut them out and layered it. The yellow band was embossed with a CB folder. The paper from DCWV. I used stickles to glue down the dew drops, I like the sparkle effect it gives.

I have been having a lot of fun with these new stamp sets. The set I used for this card is "Thinking of You".





The images are embossed with black and painted with Tombows.
I used my CB swiss dots folder for the circle.I just love these back and front images. I cut them out and layered them on the edge of the card.

"Popcorn the Bear" stamp sets are now in Canada at The Rubber Room and can be shipped worldwide through The Rubber Room on-line store .

Have a great day, Thanks for stopping by....
