Love Bear QKR

 Hi Everyone I have 2 DT cards for today

This is for the challenge at QKR. Our challenge is on the 1st and 15th of every month, so you have 2 chances every month to enter the challenge.

We will select two winners each of the weeks 
1 using QKR Stampede  or Eureka Stamps image
 and 1 using any image!

Anything Goes every 1st & 15th of the month

Another of my Nieces has her birthday in March and I made this for her, she is 65, I always think of my girls, as I call them, as children, then think of their ages and that this one is a Grandmother of 2 with another due in May, where have all the years gone?

Anyhow, firstly in Photoshop I added a sentiment to paper and after printing I cut it out with my guillotine, then used a marker and ruler to edge the piece, it was attached to the card awaiting the rest to be added

 I chose this lovely bear to make her card and as I have said before, I am in the throes of adding cut shapes onto my cards. I printed and cut the bear in my digital die cutting machine as always, then cut the floral wreath background. I coloured the bear with Distress Inks, added 3D glaze to the eyes, clear sparkle pen to the flowers he is holding and then coloured the wreath again with Distress Inks, I added a few gems to zhuzh up a bit.

Image - Bear Love QKR Stampede
coloured with Nuvo Brilliantly Vibrant Watercolour pencils
Wreath - Silhouette Design - #1800128
Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Broken China, Mustard Seed
sentiment - a mix of words I saw on the web

as the sun was shining I decided to take another photo in the sun.
The funny thing is, the wreath are the real colours and the bear is the real colour in the photo taken inside?

I'm sure your niece feels young when you still see her as a girl ;). I think we all need someone to see us like this! Such a fun image and dynamic card! I totally get the photo challenge (that's why I use black and white striped backgrounds-I aim to keep them as true and it all kind of works out;) ).

I don't know where the time goes, but it sure does fly by doesn't it?!! I love this adorable card Faith, the pretty wreath is perfect backdrop for this cute bear. You have colored both so beautifully too. I'm sure your niece will love this card. How fun that a new baby will be born soon!!!! A spring baby is always fun, babies bring such joy! Hugs, Brenda

A gorgeous card Faith! I know exactly what you mean about 'your girls' - had to laugh about your niece being a grandma! The light is so tricky for photography at the moment isn't it. It's driving me nuts! Vicky x
