Mmmmm Mint and Chocolate!!
This time for the challenge at Less is More #188 I've gone more minty than chocolaty. I'm also entering it into the challenges at
Papertake Weekly to use a repeated image
Sister Act #73 anything goes
Outlawz Friday Colouring challenge teddy bear
Outlawz Monday Greeting Card Challenge to have Happy in the sentiment
I started this card by stamping the teddy in the centre of the card and also on to a post-it note using Memento ink. I trimmed the post-it image exactly on the outline and placed it over the image on the card. I then repeatedly stamped the flower, using Brilliance ink, over the rest of the card. When I removed the post-it note the image is now in front of the background stamping. Both stamps are from Stamp-It. I used the Brilliance ink, applied using a water brush, to the teddy background. The teddy was coloured using a few different brown water colour pencils which I went over with the water brush with a dabbing motion rather than sweeping the brush across to give texture to the fur. I coloured a piece of white card with the Brilliance ink pad direct to the card as a backing for the sentiment stamp. There's no name on the stamp so I can't give credit for it. The sentiment topper was mounted using 3D foam pads
