Amanda Jane Designs - Tied With A Bow

 Morning Everyone

Today I have my Amanda Jane Designs (AJD) designer hat on today, and I'm sharing my latest card using another of her cute bears from the 'Bear Bundle', which I teamed up with one of her pretty digital paper. The cute bear can also be bought on it's own, it's called 'Tied with A Bow' (see the links below). I just love these little guys. I used distress re-inkers to colour with. I hope you like it. (For sale - £4.50 + P&P - requests by email please)

Every month Amanda has a wonderful challenge in her Facebook group (see link at the bottom of the page), with a different theme each month. You can enter your card, tag or colouring etc into the competition as long as you use one of her images or papers, and it meets the theme. You can win lovely digi stamps as a prize. So in this month (April) it's 'Pastel Colours', and you still have time to enter. So what are you waiting for.

Amanda has lots of  lovely digi stamp, papers and sentiments in her Etsy shop, along with some pre-coloured images and papers. Note, there's a wonderful 25% off sale on atm, so grab a bargain! Here is the link to the Amanda Jayne Designs Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps and papers.

Here's What I Did
I printed the pink sheet from AJD digital papers, then trimmed it down to fit the front of a 5" x 7" scalloped card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. This was attached to the card front. 
I imported the cute little bear into my software and add a sentiment of my own, then resized them both to fit my project. The image was printed onto watercolour cardstock. 

The image was printed again onto masking paper and fussy cut out, this was placed over the top of the image on the paper. Using a heart stencil I applied pink ink through it, then removed the stencil and the masks. The image was coloured with distress ink pads and re-inkers. I drew a horizontal line across the bottom of the scene to ground the bear, and then painted in a grassy effect. 

The completed scene was glued to an rectangle postage stamp frame cut from pink card. The finished topper was adhered to the centre of the card front. To finish off the card I added glitter to the heart, and added a mini butterfly with a pearl.
