This card is for my nephew who will turn 5 this weekend! It also is for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #43. The colors this week are chocolate chip, ruby red, pumpkin pie, old olive, and brocade blue. What a fantastic color combo! If you have not tried her challenges...what are you waiting for! They are a great way to get those juices in your brain flowing!!!
I used the sets Under the Stars and Short & Sweet to complete this card. I used all of the colors in card stock and very vanilla too. I stamped the bear and the smore in Stazon Timber Brown on to watercolor paper. I watercolored them in with my aqua painter and chocolate chip ink. I threw in little creamy caramel for his tummy. I gotta say this is the first time that I used my aqua painter and I LOVE IT!!! My sil and upline (the same person) got me hooked on it!! She talked it up so much that I had to get it! It is so easy to use!!!! Anyway...back to the card...I stamped the saying in pumpkin pie. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug too! Then I used the word window punch! The circles are made with the 1/2 inch circle punch. I cut out the hat and the candle. The pom pom on the hat was punched out with a flower punch from Target. I popped the bears face, the smore and the main image square with dimensionals!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
