Make The Cards Challenge With Sassy & Crafty

By | 02/08/2021

The Make The Cards Challenge for week 3 is a theme challenge and that theme is Congratulations!

I am not gonna fib…I thought it was Celebrate and that is the card that I made.  I did a quick adjustment to amend my sentiment to include a congratulations with a slightly different type and font.

I LOVE this sweet bear stamp set from Sassy & Crafty.  This is my current favorite stamp set in all of my stash (which spans 2 states, so that is something!).

There are 3 bears in the set and I feel like these are the grown up version of a sweet bear to color with your favorite medium.

I’ve used my Karin Brushmarker Pro watercolor set to add some fun color to this image.  I love to watercolor and I haven’t done very much watercoloring in months.  It feels so good to get back to it!

I actually heat embossed this in black and then added water to small parts of the image and dotted the color on with the watercolor brushmarkers.  I used a small paint brush to move the color out to the center of the bear.  I used a combination of 3 browns on the bear and two cool grays on the little bunnies in the box.  One deep purple worked on the box with a little pink for the bow and some bunny ears!

I added some of the cool grays below the bear to ground him and gave him a blue watercolor wash background.  I always love how that looks when it is done.

I really like the Karin Brushmarkers.  I think they are my favorite watercolor brush paints that I’ve tried so far.  They are on the pricey side and I had to wait a couple of months to get them.  They were worth the wait and I finally have time to pull them out and create with them!
