latest challenge (and Cuthbert)

This is my card for the latest challenge from movingalongwiththetimes - I've changed the sketch a fair bit though! The bear comes from the Bubble & Squeak set of stamps - i'm never sure which is which with these, but it is a cute bear all the same. It was coloured with pencils again, then cut out and mounted on a diamond of paper from my Graphicus Guild pack, then matted onto gold mirri card. The flowers were punched from scraps of the same paper, and the vellum strips were from a agazine freebie.

Having done ths one, I decided to see if the same layout would work with the Cuthbert bear stamp from Elusive Images. I stamped the bear, and coloured him with pencils, then cut him out minus the flag he holds in the original. The balloon came from the Bubble & Squeak plate, cut out and slipped into Cuthbert's hand. The backgroiund stamp is also from Cuthbert, again coloured with watercolour pencils and matted onto some blue paper - the flowers were punched from the same paper. this time I put the bear at the bottom left, and he was stuck on with glue gel to give him some dimension


  1. Hi Veronica, thank you for joining in with the challenge this week over at MAWTT. Glad you liked my sketch. You have done a beautiful Job with both. I like diamond shape. some people cannot get on with them, so thank you.


  2. Veronica it is amazing how you can get 2 cards looking so different from using 1 sketch. A great way to boost your stock of cards too. Thank you so much for joining us at MAWTT this week xx Clare x

  3. Lovely cards Veronica and I love how you've used Cuthbert. You've coloured him and the background scene beautifully with the pencils.
