#85 Honey Bear
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - distressing
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle Shop - $10 gift certificate
Hello again fellow crafters, and my card today uses one of the images from our prize sponsor this week, Digi Doodle called 'Honey Bear'. Now, why said bear is crying I am not too sure given that he seems to have plenty of honey in his jar and the bees around him seem friendly enough! I have coloured him in with Promarkers, though the wings of the bees were coloured with the new Flexmarker pens.
For the obligatory distressing elements I have torn my design paper using a tearing ruler and inked around the edges with several colours of Distress Inks. I have also made my own flower as you can see, by scrunching up some Spellbinders die cuts to create a kind of carnation, (which might not be seasonal but is at least distressed, LOL), which I then sat on a Marianne Creatables leaf die cut. I thought this leaf perfect for an autumnal-feel card given its vein-like structure. I had used the same scalloped Spellbinders shape as the flower to create the mat for the image & the sentiment, cutting this time from white card and inking it with the a couple of the same Distress Inks I had used on the dp. I created the sentiment myself on the PC, adding the isolated bee from a copy of main image. The double-sided satin 'old-gold' ribbon is from my stash.
