Thank You with a Bear Hug


Welcome to my studio!  I hope you like my card today made with Repeat Impressions Bear image stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle ink and Colored with Copics.   I use a textured paper towel and Copic Colorless Blender to give texture to the fur on the bears...hope you can see it.   I assembled the card following Tuesday Morning Sketch using a pink card base layered with pattern papers from MME Lost & Found pad. I also embossed a layer with Cuttlebug EF Divine Swirls and stamped a Paper & Such sentiment with Memento Rose Bud ink.
