I'm continuing to guest design this month for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge Blog!
This week's challenge is called a One Element Wonder challenge! The idea being to use one element plus a greeting to create a simpler card.
I decided to grab my Essentials by Ellen All Inside set since I've had it a while and had not had the opportunity of using it yet. Lookie:
STINKIN' CUTE!!! (YILM!) I love this bear! I love how the matching die cuts around his arms to make it so you can tuck one of the hears that are part of the set into his arms!
He's just lightly colored with one color of Copic marker that was blended out with the colorless blender. For the background, I used a paper from a 6 x 6 pad from Bo Bunny called Calendar Girl.
I added some clear Wink of Stella over the heart to make it mo better.
I used Prismacolor pencils to create this ombre effect in the letters...I love outlined greetings just so I can do this!
A little bit of black baker's and some sequins finish off the card!
