Little Angel Bear
It's time for another challenge at Stamping With the Dragon. We are sponsored by the wonderful Beary Dust stamps! If you haven't checked out Beary Dust, you really need to! She has soo many cute images!
This time,the challenge is to use a recipe: Use a transparency on your card, and three buttons. (As you can see from my card above, I went a little wild with the buttons and used too many! LOL) These buttons are recycled from an old shirt, when I did my cleaning spree on the closets and throwing out old clothes. I apologize for the quality of the photo. I tried several times to take a better one but they all came out with that shiny glare from the transparency on the front of the card. I hope you'll be able to see the card well enough.
This cute image is Angel Bear, from Beary Dust Stamps. I used the sketch at Crafty Sentiments for the layout of the card. The image was colored with my Promarkers. The bear's wings and halo were glittered to add sparkle. I decided to go with all shades of green for my color scheme. The background paper is striped (hard to see in the pic--Again, I apologize about that). I used a scalloped border punch by Martha Stewart to punch the border on the cardstock behind the image. The sentiment, "Cherish" is from Stampin Up, punched in white with the oval punch from Stampin Up, then matted on a green scalloped oval from Stampin Up! (Reminding us to celebrate life and cherish each day that we live to enjoy) I used transparency as the overlay for the card. The transparency was embossed with the Cuttlebug using the Divine Swirls folder. I finished the card by adding the buttons on top of the overlay, down the left side of the image. My Cuttlebug is one of my favorite things...I love all the cool things you can do with it.
Now, it's your turn to play along with us in this challenge! Let your imagination run wild and let's see your creative ways to use transparency on a project. Then, take a pic of it and upload it to the challenge post, here, at Stamping With The Dragon. You may use stamps from any company on your card, so there are no image restrictions. You have till July 15th to play with us. Make sure you do! You don't want to miss the great prize of Digi images of your choice, from Beary Dust Stamps.
