This card is for my friend Sue, it's her birthday next week. Her partner calls her Sue Bear and she likes blue so I think she'll be happy with this.
I would also like to enter it in a challenge over at Make My Monday, the theme this week is monochrome.
To begin with I put a mask over a white card and used Distress Inks Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky to make the background. Then I brushed silver mica powder over the ink before it dried to get that shine (just like the Mother's Day cards).
I have stamped the little Penny Black bears using Faded Jeans and water brushed them as well as blending the edges while the die (Spellbinders - Wonky Squares) was still in place. Each bear is mounted on foam pads.
The letters were silver, they have been coloured with a blue permanent marker. There are various sized clear gems on some of the flowers to add a bit of sparkle.
