Hi, friends, Chark here today to show you what I created with the new Paper Layering Bear die cuts. This bear is so majestic looking, but he’s also wearing a scarf! I think that means he’s got a fun side… am I maybe spending too much time thinking about this bear? 🙂
In this card, I used both of the dies to cut out the bear and painted him with the pearlized Gansai Tambi watercolors. The white is fabulous for a polar bear.
I then used the sticky glue to paint parts of his scarf and after it dried, added the copper gilding flakes. I used the glue pen to dot some of the stars (from my patterned paper stash, it’s Studio Calico) and added a tiny bit of the copper flakes. And the hugs sentiment die cut has the glue and gilding flakes too, so they all match. I think the black, white and copper color combo is pretty classy.
For the ornament, I first embossed the bear die into the cardstock by using an embossing mat instead of a cut plate in the Big Shot. Then I painted him again with the Gansai Tambi watercolors. The gray parts are a pencil and the paint mixed a bit with the graphite and made his fur have some gray shading, which I love. The paint set doesn’t come with black, so this was just perfect. His ears, the bow and scarf are all the coral color in the paint set.
After it was all dried, I die cut the bear from the ornament in the Infinity Ornament die set (you get lots of pieces in this set for a great price) to make a tag. I can either put this on a card or write someone’s name on it and attach it to a package.
Thanks for stopping by today!
