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!
