Beary Special News
Hello! Today I have this card to share with you. I made this as a sample for the challenge going on at the Get Inky! stamps challenge blog where the ongoing theme is "Newspapers and or Yellow pages." What a fun challenge you should see all the ideas the team has!
I used a pre made 5 x 7 card, some scrapbook papers (blue= Creative Memories; patterned=Dollar Tree; a page from a local telephone directory; the "Beary special Cupcake " stamp from Get Inky!, black archival ink by Rangers; colouring pencils from Prang,; white card stock from Staples, distress ink in "spun Sugar" by Ranger, and some buttons from Dollar tree.
Stamping onto this type of paper is actually fun and makes for interesting backgrounds and creates the appearance of texture. Colouring pencils blend very easily and smoothly on this surface too.
