Transported

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!

Here is a cute "Thinking of You" card I created with the adorable Penny Black Transported bear . In the original stamp, the bear is holding onto a group of balloons. I thought it would be cute to make the sentiment the balloon so I changed it up a bit and added a sentiment from Expressions Clear stamp set by Inkadinkado.
Materials used: Stamps-Transported (Penny Black), Expressions Clear Sentiment set (Inkadinkado); Memento black ink; Pure Luxury white (Gina K Designs); designer paper-Homespun Collection (Memory Box); Copic markers; adhesive pearls (Kaiser Craft); paper piercing tool and mat pack (SU!), scalloped circle punch (SU!); oval/ scalloped oval dies (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); dimensionals (SU!); hemp (SU!).

This is one way you can get a lot more mileage from your stamps. Stamp just part of the image for a whole different look! I colored the bear with Copic markers.

I pierced the edges of the blue designer paper and added some Kaiser Craft pearls at the corners. The ribbon is May Arts.

You can find all the stamps and embellishments on this card at Stamper's Dream. Check it out! Michelle is now carrying stamps from Flourishes, JustRite, Our Craft Lounge as well as fun embellishments from May Arts, Kaiser Crafts, Pebbles, and Chatterbox, to name a few!

Very cute! What kind of paper do you use to do your coloring on? I just can't get the hang of it with my copic markers. I'm wondering if perhaps it's the paper that I use or user error, lol.
