Big Ol' Hungry Bear


I apologize for posting so late today. I had a busy day working in the stamp room, having lunch with a friend, and doing some shopping before I leave for Leadership on Tuesday. I hope you'll think the wait was worth it! I LOVE this card! I made it for a Leadership dinner a few online friends and I are having on Friday night. I made ten of these and ten was enough, it took me many, many hours to make them. When I first saw the new preview set Just Buzzin' By, my first thought was now I have a honey jar to go with my bear! Just so you know the set is precious just the way it is, it features three charming bees, a very nice hive, the honey pot, a flower and two verses. But I knew I had to pair the honey pot with my bear. I had this idea in my head for weeks and finally sat down earlier this week to get it on paper. All supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamp sets: Just Buzzin' By (available Jan. 19th), Under the Stars
Paper: More Mustard, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor paper
Ink: Basic Brown, More Mustard ink and marker, Close to Cocoa ink and marker
Accessories: Earth Elements and Neautral Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, dimensionals, Spritzer tool, Vintage brads, Chocolate chip double stitched grosgrain, More Mustard grograin, sponges
Here a picture of some of the detail on the card. I used Crystal Effects to make the honey have a shine to it and I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to add some sparkle to the bees wings!
