Hi, there peeps, and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! Today’s challenge is brought to us by Frances and is to include a teddy bear in your project in some way. Because July 10th was Teddy Bear Picnic Day. Who knew?
OK, So I started off with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and went from there. I stamped PI Bear Hugs with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink (so PERFECT for coloring with Copic markers!) on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper and proceeded to color her with Copics. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom, also with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, and added a strip of Tangy Orange card stock stamped with Typewriter Text Background and more Black Licorice Hybrid ink snuggled up beside it. I then added a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics cut from Nightshift Blue card stock on which I’d stamped Diagonal Stripes Background with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I finished up with a Prima Donna Petals Die-namics flower cut from Lemon Drop card stock, Tangy Orange card stock, and Sour Apple card stock for the leaves.
Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside, along with the image again, stamped off the edge of the paper.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our July Guest Designer, Kelly Booth!
