“Happy Bear-day” By Karen GoGuen 6


I drew the white circle for the card with my trusty old compass measuring 3 ½” from center and cut the scallop edge with my decorative scissors. It was embossed with a CB folder swiss dots. The purple circle was cut the same way with a measurement of 3 ¼” and the DP measured and cut at 3 1/8”.  I folded all the circles in half and then adhered them together with Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. The circle the image is layered onto has been cut with my Nestabilities circle dies.

I stamped the image onto ordinary white card stock with Stazon jet black ink. I colored the image with Tombow Irojiten Color Pencils from volume 4, 5 and 6.

Starting with the lightest of a color group I added the color leaving lots of white space layering the color from lightest to darkest. I used a paper stump and Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) to blend the color.

You can add more color and re-blend or if you have too much color you can remove some with the Gamsol.

I layered the circles and the image using Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue to adhere them together and Tombow Foam Tabs to attach them to the card.

I punched the flowers & ferns and used Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere them to the card.

The adorable image I used is from High Hopes Stamps- Sitting Buddy with Balloon S-195 and Happy Bear-day sentiment.

    this could not be any cuter!!! I need to play with my colored pencils more as you got such a bold color and mine lightens up so much when I use Gamsol.
