http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/ The challenge is to use a stamped image and mine is a new set from MFT called Hug it Out. Not having a lot of crafting time meant that I haven’t been able to use some of my new purchases and it felt good to use this particular stamp. The hearts and the sentiment come from the same set. The background behind the die cut sun rays is a vellum piece I made a long time ago for my hubby. As he no longer needs it I took it back to use and I cut a piece for this card to put behind the sun rays. The sun die is from Simon Says. Once it was cut I swiped fossilized amber distress ink and a small amount of squeezed lemonade over it. I was able to glue the vellum and the rays easily without the glue showing through. I coloured the image using a combination of Inktense pencils, Prisma colour pencils and my Sakura glaze pens. I tried to make the bear have a furry look but I’m not sure I achieved it. I quite like how the card turned out and my hubby really liked it too. The sentiment and image are perfect for the current times we live in when real hugging isn’t allowed. Can’t wait for that to change.
