Celebrate Today With a Birthday Bear
Hi all! Aletha Jane here. This will be my first post on Brutus/Monroe’s blog as a new designer. I am excited and honored to be working with Brutus/Monroe and their talented designers I love everything about our products. They range from card making, tags, ATCs, to mixed media (and much more), whatever is your delight.
On to my project…I have a very cute and fun birthday card to share. I first stamped this little chubby bear from the “Birthday Bears” set in B/M’s Raven ink. This ink has the most important attributes that I would look for in a hybrid ink, waterproof and alcohol marker safe. With that said, after the ink was set I colored with Copic markers. Most of the bear was colored with the warm greys.
My next step is to stamp the “Watercolor” background stamp with Sidewalk Surface Ink. The surface inks are going to be another favorite. My next step is to cut all my layers with B/M’s 8 piece stitched square die. The top dark brown layer was embossed with our embossing ink and our ultra-fine alabaster embossing powder. The sentiment "Celebrate Today" is included with the "Birthday Bear" stamp set. Finally assemble your card. I did fussy cut the bear and pop it up with foam squares.
Thanks so much for stopping by. More inspiration will be coming your way tomorrow. We hope you will check out our Brutus/Monroe's blog every day.
