I love stamping and so was super excited when this stamp was reduced in a local craft store to just 50p. A forever friends teddy stamp and cute sentiment wow! I got so many things that day that even now i have unopened treasures to play with. So back to the card at hand, it is yet another attempt at a card suitable for males as i find this a real challenge.
I got a bit steriotypical using blue as my colour. I love the starburst paper that i also used for the kitten card, the blue really shines out and works great with my 3d pearl effects in bright blue.
I used a large section of the starburst paper and decided to use the back of a piece from the same paper pad to stamp my sentiment and bear on to help keep a consistent colour on the card. I used my black ink and lightly coloured the bear using a yellow pen just shading the areas carefully.
There seemed to be too much space either side of my sentiment so I used very small strips of the star burst paper and then dashes of my 3d paint to really add some depth. I mounted this on pale blue paper and then used a small squate of the same paper for the base of the present. I used two colours of ribbon and a small bow from my set and I am gappy with the loom of the bear and present but overall think the card is missing something. I have also decided that the pale blue doesnt work very well with the darker tones on the card.
