A Bear in the Woods


It is hard to tell in the picture....I couldn't get a bright picture of this card....but the card base is Always artichoke stamped with Sanded background in Chocolate chip. The main image is stamped on confetti white matted on chocolate chip, both punched in the corners with the ticket corner punch. Natural Twine is wrapped around the card fold twice and tied in a simple knot.
Now to how the main image was stamped:
I first stamped the bear from Wildlife Reserve in Chocolate Chip classic ink. I then created my mask for the reverse mask as I did in the tree card I posted earlier this month. I cut a circle with the Colluzle Cutter on a scratch paper. I laid that scratch paper with the circle cut out over the bear and stamped the single pine tree from Lovely As A Tree in Always Artichoke multiple times without reinking. While the mask was still on, I sponged Night of Navy in the ares around the trees to simulate a sky. Remove your mask and there you have it!

I had a thought for this card. What if you dabbed little spots in the sky with the two way glue pen and added dazzling diamonds glitter? Wouldn't it look like stars twinkling on a clear night?!
