Teddy Christmas

Hi and welcome to another challenge from the team at Just Add Ink!  Today's challenge is a fabulous sketch by teamie Chantell.

Image may contain: text

I decided to make a Christmas card using this sketch and was inspired by the Muse Christmas Visions challenge.



For my wall, I colored some white embossing paste with Stone ink and applied it over a brick wall stencil, before setting it aside to dry.  I then set to work on my teddy bear and the stack of gifts, coloring both with Copics.  To give the bear some added texture, I used a scrap of towel and some colorless blender over his "fur".

The banners were die-cut and stacked and to ground the teddy, I used a strip of black cardstock for him to sit on.


Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team have done.  You'll be impressed, for sure!

And here is Cornelia's Muse card:




Cheers
Karren
