Hangin' Bear

     It's Friday again and you know how much I love playing with QKR Stampede images!  Our new challenge theme this week is a based on this combo of colors:

     At first, I wasn't sure how those would work when coloring an image but once I picked up the ProMarkers and started, everything just flowed.  They are a great combo!  Unfortunately, my slate brown has a reddish tone to it in the photo but it actually is a pretty close match to the inspiration photo color.  Here's my result using Digi 13408 "Just Hangin' " and Digi 13411 "Hangin' " for the sentiment.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

     The image and mat plus the sentiment and its mat are all cut with Spellbinders dies.  I used a Swiss Dot embossing folder on the gray CS.  I wish it showed in the photo but the black CS is also embossed with a honeycomb folder.  The ribbon has a diamond pattern in it and all three of those things give some great texture.  The bow is 'dyed' with ProMarkers and again, looks reddish in the photo but is actually more slate brown.

hahaha! Very cute, Connie! Your little bear is adorable, and I love the use of the interesting layering technique! Eye-catching AND artistic! The sentiment is also very cute, but what I like best is the little boo-boo bandaid on your sweet bear's bottom. LOL Wonderful card! hugs, de
