Work of Art

Good evening or almost good night. When I finish this post I am heading to bed for sure. It's been a long day. But I wanted to share the card I finished today for a friend's birthday.


The image is from QKR Stampede called Artist Bear. I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut the image from MFT Cross Stitch Ovals. The next layer I die cut the sentiment, from Create with TLC, with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitch Rectangles.  On that layer I used 
Jack Frost Glimmer Mist (it gives the card a really nice shimmer) and then splatter painted with Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn distress ink to give it a splatter painted look. The yellow layer is a textured paper that isn't showing up in the photo. The base is blue card stock. I added a couple of brads to the image die cut and the image is popped up with foam tape.
I am entering these challenges:

Well, my bed is calling me and tomorrow is another day. Thanks for stopping by and checking our what I've been up to. Hope you had a great start to your week!

Donna, I just saw this darling card over on the Outlawz and I love what you did with the sketch! But I had to come by for a closer look and now I'm here wearing 2 different DT hats - Thanks so much for playing along with us in our "Anything Goes with a featured Critter" challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies this month and also for playing at QKR Stampede this week and using a QKR image. Good luck in both challenges. :-D

This card is so fantastic! I adore the sentiment you used and I like how your cute little artist bear reflects that so perfectly. And how clever of you to make the card itself look like a splattered paint palette! This made me smile and is full of so many great details. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
