Welcome to the start of the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Just a little hop for those Coffee/Tea/Cocoa lovers and Papercrafters (ok so it's really more like a big hop, but you get the idea!!) :)
Bear & Bird stamp set, and if you follow the WF blog or Instagram you have seen Nina's loose coloring with Copic markers. I really like the looked and figured it was time to give it a try!
First, I stamped the images, placing the bear & bird in the middle and the long flower clusters at each side. On a scrap paper, I stamped one of the round flower clusters and the small coffee cup. Then I picked out 'spring' colors for my loose coloring. I kept the colors simple, a light and a dark, using my Spectrum Noir Markers: EB1, EB2, EB7, GB3, HB1, HB2, LG3, LG5, LY1, LY3, PP1, PP2, TB1, TB4.
When my coloring was done I cut out the bear & flowers with a large circle die. I fussy cut out the flower cluster and coffee cup. I used a craft knife to cut the just the bear arms, then I was able to insert the coffee cup between the bear's hands.
I added the flower cluster above the bear with foam tape and stamped the You Are Beary Special sentiment on a small die cut circle. Then I adhered some pretty pink and doily pattern paper to a white card base. I added the stamped circles with foam tape and last rounded all the corners.
