Valentine Bear

Good afternoon and Happy Saturday. Today's card has a DeeDee's Digi that came from my time as a Design Team Member at DeeDee's. She has closed her shop and is now doing other things, so I've linked to her new blog. DeeDee designed such cool images, cute, easy to use; this image is one I found printed out in my stash box, and it went along to Florida at Christmas time. Got colored when I was enjoying the sunshine & dolphins playing.



- Digi Bear colored with Copics, die cut with a S/B pinking circle; black mat cut with a larger pinking circle from the same set. DI Worn Lipstick sponged around the outside edges.

- Cheery Lynn Italian doily cut from red c/s, and Elizabeth Craft Heart Background cut from red c/s that had more pink tones in it. (Recollection card pack of Valentine colors).

- Behind the heart background, old dictionary page was torn, sponged with DI Picked Raspberry with Festive Berries at the corners and edges to deepen the color. Crinkled up the old page, then sponged a
layer of Festive Berries over all of it, with the deeper color hitting on the wrinkled parts. The boo-boo here is that the torn piece had to be applied in a landscape fashion, because I don't tear very well! The cut out hearts need to be vertical; so the script is sideways!!! Oh well. I had already done all the sponging, wrinkling, etc, when I realized this would be the result.

- Hero Arts Valentine word die cut from black cardstock.

Thanks for joining me this afternoon, and ya'll have a great weekend! Be back later to share a card for our Christmas Card Club.Tha's all folks! Hugs

A great piece of work Mary. I absolutely love the background with the script peeking through. The little girl bear is a real cutie. Imagine colouring this whist watching dolphins! That's magical. Barbxx

What a sweet little bear holding her balloons. I was just surprised when I saw your card as I just finished one using the pinking dies of black and white! Great minds and all that. Cute idea to use a dictionary page and I don't think it matters about the print. It looks like vertical lines and is fine.

I love all these layers of red and that adorable little bear with her sweet balloons! A great use of all these dies!

Brenda said...

What a sweet Valentine Momma Mary! I love that little bear you colored up and have to agree that DeeDee had some awful cute digi's! This one is no exception! Love it! Hugs, Brenda
