Amanda Jane Designs - Bumble Bee Bear Sketch 2

 Hi Everyone

I'm sharing the 2nd of my cards highlighting Amanda Jane Designs (AJD) latest facebook challenge using her wonderful digi stamps and papers. As I mentioned a few weeks ago this month's challenge (June) Amanda has created a fabulous 'sketch' to follow. To enter you basically use the card sketch (layout) as your template, it can be used in any direction, as I have done. The rules are that you must use either one or more of AJD's papers OR one of her digi stamps etc to create your card. You can win lovely digi stamps as a prize (see link at the bottom of the page), so why not have a go. 

As you can see from my card I have again rotated the sketch a little to create my own layout using all the elements. Once again I have used AJD digi papers and another of her cute Bee stamps, this time Bumble Bee Bear. I used Inktense watercolour pencils to coloured with. I hope you like it. x

Amanda has lots of  lovely digi stamp, papers and sentiments in her Etsy shop, along with some pre-coloured images and papers. 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 used some of the lovely 'Bee-autiful' digi papers from AJD that I printed off a few weeks ago. I trimmed down the yellow striped paper to fit the card front leaving a slim border around the edge, then attached to the card front. I followed this up by die cutting a piece of the yellow dotted paper into a scalloped square, this was glued flat onto the striped paper. To finish the background layout, a strip of black and white dotty paper was glued flat down the left hand side directly over the rest of the papers.

Next I imported the little 'Bumble Bee Bear' into my software and resized it to fit my project. The image was printed onto watercolour cardstock, then die cut into a circle. I drew a horizontal line across the bottom to ground the bear, and hand stamped a few grasses and flowers to finish it off. The image was coloured with watercolour pencils. I created my own sentiment in my software befitting a bee card. :)

The completed scene was glued onto a yellow scalloped circle, and added to the card front along with the sentiment. To finish off the card I added a few white dots to his cheeks and highlights to his body.
