You tug at my heartstrings

Here is another card from me using one of the adorable bears from sweetpea stamps drawn by Elaine Cox. I think these bears are so sweet and love how different they are from anything out there. Today I've been thinking a little bit outside the box - not doing things I usually do. To start with I inked the stamp with a brown inkpad that has 6 hues in one, going from light to dark. Then I used a different colouringtechnique using pastel colours and some sort of rubbing alcohol. Finally I used the same patterned paper for two panels of the card.

Challenges for this card:

Magical monday - lace
Papertake weekly - sketch
Simon says stamp - coffee and cream
Stamp challenges - something with flowers
Stampin for the weekend - monochromatic
