I {heart} this bear!

and I {heart} this sketch too! I found this sketch over at Jen del Muro's blog: I heart 2 stamp.
And, I had borrowed this set from my good friend and great customer Kris....I was dying to use it! I came up with this card....
This guy was a lot of fun to color - I used watercolor paper and SU markers. It's one of my favorite way to color these days. The markers blend really well on the watercolor paper, and you can even remove some color to acheive highlights. Speaking of markers - don't forget about my chance to win your own set of markers! See the link to the right of the page - yeah - that's it, up there at the top! I used a rub-on on my twill ribbon for the sentiment. That's a good way to squeeze in a sentiment if you are running short on room, and you know me, I can't/don't usually have a project that doesn't incorporate ribbon! This set in on my wish list! Along with several others....however, I'm waiting to see what's gonna come out on the Last Chance List. That will be posted on June 1st! It's right around the corner....I can't believe that we'll be getting a new Stampin' Up! catalog in just a little over a month! I'm still drooling over the one that I've got! And some of the DSP I will be horribly sad to see go. But, I know Stampin' Up! will have PLENTY of other goodies to fill my wish list and to long for!
Thanks for stopping by!
