Back again with another take on the Thinking of You Card Challenge with Ashley!
I have been on a bit of a scene kick lately so, of course, I once again have a card with a stamped scene. This one features stamp from Ink Blot Shop’s get tired of a Flopsy Forest Friends and Tiny Bubbles stamp sets. (They are both available at Simon Says Stamp! as well.)
I went old school by doing a lot of fussy cutting to put this scene together. I stamped the bears, hearts and trees on a piece of cardstock and went to town by coloring them in with markers. I went more with a specific look when I did the coloring, rather than subscribing to any traditional marker blending philosophy.
Lean in close for a minute, friends. I feel the need to confess something to you. I detest a lot of stuffy rules in card making and scrapbooking and really prefer to do my own thing, seeing where creativity takes me. And sometimes that means saying, “You know what. I don’t care about your (insert: marker blending) rules. I like the look I’ve got going on and am going to run with it for MY card.”
To give the bears (and the hearts too) a little extra pop, I applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops to them. It’s amazing how just a little something can add such pop.
Alright! That’s it for today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog for her latest take on the challenge. Be back again tomorrow.
