I’d like to thank Rhea, author of the blog Passionate Paper Creations, for sharing her adorable, hand-stamped card. I highly recommend spending some time on Rhea’s blog! She is a very talented designer and has the gift of bringing her stamped images to life. You half expect this sweet bear to complete his yawn.
Rhea kept the design simple but added some fun embellishments like the inked cheesecloth, along with the three buttons at the bottom laced with twine. I love how the cheesecloth softens the edges of the stamped image. They really add both texture and dimension.
Everyone has their own twist when coloring your stamped images. Rhea used Copic Markers to color and black Memento Ink to stamp her sleepy bear. Rhea’s or technique is to begin coloring with your lightest color followed by the darkest, medium, then back to light.
