Its finally time for the last entry for the CASometry Challenge 2: Make 5! Its a little different for the last round – Anna has asked us to CASE any card from this Pinterest board, which carries a few selected cards from the earlier submissions to the CASometry Challenge #2. Also, did you see that Anna has actually CASEd this card of mine?! Its beyond belief!! I couldn’t be happier or more proud! 😀
Well, getting past that (or this post would never be posted!!).. I chose to CASE this card of Anna’s (no surprises there! :D). I love the pretty colorful, splattered background – and the bunny looks like she’s thinking about someone too!
And here’s my card –
My first thought was to make this a one layer card, but that didn’t turn out very well, so I changed gears and it turned to this card. 🙂 Well, the idea still remain the same – the bear has received a ‘Happy Mail’ and is wondering which one of his friends has sent him the mail… he’s got loads of friends! 😀
To make the card, I first blended the background using PTI Melon Berry, Spiced Marmalade and Scattered Straw distress inks. I then sprinkled water on it – love that splattered look! Once it dried, I stamped the cute bear and then positioned and die cut the windows for the little critters, using We R Memory Keepers Quickutz Nesting Circles.
I then stamped the critters on scrap cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored them all using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils and fuzzy cut them all. I then positioned the panel on the card base, and adhered the positive pieces of the circles on the card base, and adhered the little critters using foam dots.
I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black, added the tiny circles, representing the thought bubbled, and mounted the panel on the card base. I then added the bear using more foam dots. And that finished my card! Love how this turned out! 🙂
I am also submitting this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes and Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #365 (inspired by the colors, though they do not look as paste – and I used teal/mint on the envelopes instead of green, without realizing it..) –
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
