Hello! I have a quick and simple yet, in my opinion, powerful encouragement card for you today:
The focal image are the hugging bears from the stamp set Happy Hugs by Clearly Besotted. I stamped the bears in Archival Jet Black ink onto a 4×4 inch piece of watercolour cardstock. I coloured the bears with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. The colours I chose are 060 Brown and 065 Mid Brown. I, then, used Drawing Gum Liquid Frisket by Pebeo to mask off the image, so I could work on the background.
After the drawing gum had dried, I made the background with Distess Inks: using the stencil Radiating Rays by My Favorite Things, I applied Distress Inks in the colours Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber to make the sun. The ground on which the bears are standing was created using the colour Peeled Paint. After the background was finished, I rubbed the drawing gum gently away. I mounted the panel onto a black cardbase that measures 4.25 x 4.25 inches (unfolded) using regular glue.
The sentiment is German and is from the stamp set Ich bin hier by Klartext-Stempel (Dani Peuss). It literally translates to “If you need me, I am here”. It was also stamped in Archival Jet Black ink to match the focal image.
Using the other hugging critters from the stamp set Happy Hugs, I will make more cards similar to this one.
I hope you like this card! Thank you for stopping by!
