CPS Sketch #153

Hey everyone,
I’m back today with the card I created for the CPS #153 sketch. I don’t usually use sketches but I made an exception for this one as it’s being sponsored by Papertrey Ink and there’s a fab PTI prize up for grabs!!
This is the sketch we had to follow:
And here is my take on it:
What do you think?! Quite a bold card with all that Pure Poppy but I think it works!
I created another one of my little furry bears using the stamp from Baby Button Bits and colouring with Copics. This time to get the darker fur I coloured part of my face cloth in with the darker shade of red I was using and immediately dabbing that over. I’m pleased with the end result!
After cutting out my bear I adhered him to some circle mats using plenty of Pinflair. Both circles were cut with Nestibilities, with the top circle being stamped with Background Basics: Diamonds using Smokey Shadow ink on Stamper’s Select White cardstock. The back scalloped circle was cut from True Black.
If you look closely at the large Pure Poppy mat you’ll be able to see two different patterns, so that was my take on how I interpreted the two rectangular panels. The top section is stamped with Background Basics: Text Style II using Versamark, and the bottom section stamped with the trail of stars from Let Freedom Ring! using Smokey Shadow ink.
I stamped the sentiment from Say It With Style using True Black ink, then distressed the edges and followed up with inking the edges in the same ink. I also used a black Copic marker to edge the sides of the mat to cover any areas my inking missed. The whole panel was adhered to the front using more Pinflair.
I’d love to hear what you think of this one! Nothing wrong with a bold card once in a while I think, and I’m loving how that furry effect translates even with a more dramatic colouring!
