Bear Hugs are the Best


I have yet another Bear Stamp.....this one is from The Pixie Cottage and is called "You Give The Best Hugs".  I used it in a card for The Pixie Cottage challenge which is a sketch with the theme option of  "Fussy and Fancy" to add embellishments, ribbons, lace, embossing, anything you like, just make it as fussy and fancy as you can! This may not be as fancy as it could be but I did not want to distract from the cute bears. I stamped (with Memento Rich Cocoa)) and colored the bears with Copics and used a scrap of terry cloth and Colorless Blender to give a furry effect.   I trimmed the image, rounded the corners and edged with Distress Ink Spun Sugar.  I made a square card using White CS as base and attached a mat of Basic Grey PP from Hopscotch paper pack. Added a square of Brown Textured sticker paper from stash and topped with the image. Added some pink heart buttons with twine and some pink rhinestones for bling.  Finished with a sentiment embossed with Zinc Chestnut EP using PSX Pixie Expressions stamp (very old). This card was designed using the Sketch below.
