Another Designed 2 Delight progressive challenge card today. This cute bear digital image is called Summer Days and is a freebie if you played in last weeks challenge at Designed 2 Delight. That's what makes it a progressive challenge, if you play each week you get a new image for the next challenge.
This little bear just seemed to be "thinking of you" so that's the Papertrey Ink sentiment I used from the Take Three Spring set. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder that had clocks and gears to represent the time passing spent thinking of you. I know, I know, I think too much :)
The image is colored with Copic markers E79, E77, E74, E71, E70, YG67, YG63, YG61, YG11, BG0000, Y21, Y23, C6, C3, C0, R20. I added a little texture to the bears fur using my blender pen dotting it on, kinda looks like a skin condition to me...
I used Alcohol and a Q tip on the bottom grassy area, then a Q tip with YG11 dropped onto it and smoothed it on the paper. I added a few drops at a time of BG0000 ink refill to a Q tip for the sky and left a little white area for clouds. They have just a little C0 smudged on the under sides. I was really happy I was able to keep the ink on the inside of the Spellbinders Labels 4 die.
The papers are Via Vellum Sunflower, Neenah Solar White and Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate. A little Stampin' Up! organdy ribbon and a clean and simple layout. This cutie is going in my Operation Write Home box. Have a blessed day!
