Antique Bears

 Hello!  Today I am using a stamp that I think I purchased at a garage sale years ago....I collect bear stamps as well as teddy bears.  I never used this one but thought of it when I was looking for something for a couple of challenges.  I stamped the Antique Bears from Hero Arts(1994) with Memento Rich Cocoa on White CS and colored with Copics.  I stamped the Flourishes sentiment from Kids Play with the same ink.  I assembled the card with Crate Paper pattern and White CS base following the Retro Rubber sketch shown below and added ribbons and buttons to complete.

Retro Rubber Challenge: #18 Sketch Challenge.  Both stamps used are older ones.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says Furry Friends.
The Ribbon Girl Blog:  Everything goes with an image.
Word Art Wednesday: Challenge-Anything goes family friendly
Addicted to Stamps: Challenge 152 Make Your Mark. Used Copics.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

I adore your old Teddy bear images! Your coloration is lovely. I really like that you used the 3 buttons for the detail underneath... ties in with the patterned paper. Thanks for including Retro Rubber in your stamping fun this week.
