Feathers, Bling and a Bear - Creative Craft Cottage Challenge

Welcome

The Creative Craft Cottage challenge this month is a colour palette, a sketch and use a digi.

Here is the sketch and colour palette.


And this is my card.  The digi image is a freebie from Hobbybook.


I coloured him with chalks and mounted him with foam dots over some embossed vellum.


I then used the feather die cuts and feather as the other element in the design, the colours used there were from the palette.


The sentiment was cut from an SB Labels 14 die after embossing the greeting.


Here you can see the dimension in the card, and some of the random bling I added.

  6. Your chalk coloring is just as wonderful as the pencils on the poppies! So soft & pretty on this cute bear. Am loving the way you've been using feathers lately. The fluffy one is so sweet with the jewels you have added, and then all tied with the dainty little bow. Again, loved the EF you selected for Little Bear... Really effective with the harlequin bkgrnd papers. TFS

  14. What a cute card! Love how you layered the real feather over the die cut ones. Adding the row of bling and the baker's twine really sets the grouping off.

    Blessings!
