Hello everyone! I'm Ivette, guest designer for Fitztown's Challenge Blog, Challenge #20 3 Designer Paper.
Copic pens used to color in the entire image. Added highlights, shading and Glossy Accent on the bear, mice and shovel. Flower Soft to bring out the different shades of greenery. I used Ultra Fine Sage, Christmas Green and Shamrock.
These nice velvet brads were glued on from Doodlebug Designs were the right size for the tray of plants Teddy is carrying.
While the Teddy image dried, I began the multi-matting process.
1-5"x 7" Recollections adhesive back printed cork. Distressed it with DI Walnut Stain. 2- 6 1/8" x 4 3/4" piece of American Crafts black. 3- 4 1/8" x 5 5/8" from DCWV's Mariposa Premium Matstack green leafy piece. 4- 5 5/8" x 4 1/8" from G45's Bird Song's 8x8 pad. 5- 5 1/8 x 4 3/4" of Bazzill's Phoenix (red dotted) cardstock. 6- 5" x 3 1/2" of Crushed Velvet cardstock by Doodlebug Design. 7- 4 5/8" x 3 14" of American Craft's white cardstock which Teddy was printed on. I also had a 6" piece of black velvet ribbon from Celebrate It (Simply Narrows) which I purchased at Michaels. Enough matting for you?
Hope you enjoyed my card for this challenge and more importantly, I hope I was able to inspire you.
