Neat and Tangled Bloom

Hi! I always struggle with how to use a stamp differently from how the designer intended. But when I saw the die that goes with the flower border from Neat and Tangled's Bloom set from their latest release I decided it could be embossed on vellum and made into a white lace background. The sentiment is from their Flamingo Floatie set!

Waffle Flower Bear vs Bees

I haven't blogged in ages!!!!!!!!!!!! So I thought I would today as it is raining here yet again in Florida!

For this card I was inspired by Sandy Allnock's jungle car race card and it is a masterpiece! So I thought Mr. Bear could be furiously pedaling away from some furious bees - ok they are cute bees.....but perhaps Mr. Bear got into their hive. Hence, the attack. I used Waffle Flower's Happy Day stamp set and Hero Arts Rain or Shine which was an add-on from the March monthly card kit. All coloring was done with Copics and I added a bit of detail with a white Signo-ball pen, Glossy Accents and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The googly eyes are from the local craft store. I added those because the bear needed to look like he was in a frenzy! I am going to try this technique again so I can get the idea of movement across better. Thanks for looking!
