Seize the Birthday #182 - Creatures Great and Small

Hello everyone! 

It's Seize the Birthday Thursday again!  This time around we want you to feature some great and small creatures in your projects! This Topping was chosen by our sweet team member Cathy! 



But if you don't want to take our Toppings option, you may enter any birthday themed projects into our gallery!

This sweet bear from Penny Black, called Little Charmer (30-662), has been on my desk and wanted to be featured in my card :) ! 


I stamped Little Charmer (30-662) on Bristol smooth paper in a black pigment ink and colored the bear with Zig brush markers. I used a water brush to blend the colors. After the coloring was done and the panel was dry I cut it using the coordinating Cut Out (51-606).


To create the background I colored a watercolor paper piece in yellow Distress inks using smooshing technique. After the panel was dry I cut it using one of the dies from Stitches of Love set (51-597) and stamped the sentiment from Tweet Tweet (30-156) set in black. 


I foam mounted the background panel on a kraft cardbase and added the bear to it using foam adhesives.

That was my DT card! Hope I was able to inspire you to play along!

Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog to get more inspiration from my teamies and our Surprise party guest  Joyce Mehrberg from Cards by the Sea!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!
Have a great one!
Hugs,
TaeEun

Isn't it interesting how many of us opted for an ink-smooshed background for our creatures? Yours is just right for this adorable bear - so gorgeously coloured, he steals my heart! :)

How sweet card, TaeEun!! This bear is so cute, and love the simple but effective watercoloured background, it matches perfectly with the kraft cardbase!

What an adorable image TaeEun and you have coloured him beautifully (as always!). Love the smooshed inky background, and the sequins are the perfect touch of bling, Cathy x

Awe... I love this card so much maybe because I have looked at the little bear with envy many times. I adore your card.
