Cuddly Buddly Bear Card

Glad you dropped by!
This card was made with a "Cuddly Buddly" stamp. I love their digi images but with their rubber stamps I am able to match the exact colors I want to my choice of papers.
This little guy was water colored (in small circular motions for texture) then popped several times. His balloon has been hit with "Stickles" and then "Crystal Effects".

The ribbon was done with shimmering watercolors to give it a satin effect. I used white acrylic paint for the dots on his feet, tie and ears.
Remember...you can click on the pictures for a closer view of the details

The papers are "Stampin Up" and "DCWV".

Please leave a note to let me know what you think and so I will know that you were here! ;)

I'm amazed by your cards. You've turned a simple stamp into a sculture and your colour choice is wonderful - not to mention how neat it all is - perfectly straight lines everywhere inlcuding the stitching! Just gorgeous.
