Going Home

     One more Mother's Day card, this time with a whole scene and lots of texture.  :-D  I adore images from Di's Digi Designs and have been slowly collecting them.  This is yet another image from them and I'm entering the card in their challenge.  Isn't that just the sweetest bear?  I love all his little forest friends, too.


I took most of the colors from Catch the Bug's color challenge.

 
     I colored the image with my ProMarkers, and cut it with a stitched die from Memory Box.  I do love my ProMarkers, and for all of my practicing with pencils, chalks, and other media, I love the way alcohol markers flow and blend.  They just do that better than anything else I've found.

     The sentiment was also cut with a smaller die from that same set, as was the cloud.  I die cut several tiny mice in two different colors, cutting them from heavy CS, which added to the texture on the card.  I used two different ribbons which I found in my stash, one deep Navy blue and one polka dot for the bow.  Again, more texture!  The tiny butterfly was saved in my stash and, off the top of my head, I don't remember who made that die but I think it's from Presscut.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
