This week’s Freshly Made Sketches #274 card sketch is the perfect sketch to showcase Pink and Main’s Bear Hugs Stamp Set. Here is the sketch:
When I am creating a card for a challenge, I first look at the card sketch and then go through my stamps to determine which stamp would best fit the card sketch design. As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, I chose Pink and Main’s Bear Hug stamp set featuring an adorable boy with his teddy bear.
I stamped the images onto Spectrum Noir cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the boy and bear with my Spectrum Noir markers. Here are the color combinations: Hair – LV1, CT4, GB3, GB6, GB10; Skin – Fs2, FS3, FS6, TN2 and FS8 for cheek color; Shirt – LV1, CG1, HB3, HB2; Bear – TN2, TN3, GB6, GB10, TN6, TN9; Pants – TB2, TB3, TB8; Shoes – TN4, TN7, TN9. He turned out so cute.
I cut a FSJ Whip Cream mat to 5 1/8″ X 3 7/8″ and ran it through my Big Shot with a diagonal stripe embossing folder (SU!). I cut a small mat out of FSJ Denim Days and stamped the sentiment on it using VersaMark ink and embossed using white embossing powder. I popped the boy and bear image out using FSJ Medium Foam square. A simply adorable card.
