Sleeping Bear


It's Anja here. Today I was inspired by violet. It's not one of my favourite colors, but I wanted to use something vibrant and Distress Oxide Wilted Violet seemed a perfect choice. I made a baby card with a cute bear sleeping in a basket.

I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Sweet Spring Kitty, Bear On Cloud and Moon, Cute Phrase),
- Distress Oxides (Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo),
- white card base (15x15 cm),
- watercolor paper (14x14 cm),
- colored and white paper for die cuts,
- little white enamel dots,
- Versafine Onyx Black ink,
- alphabet stamps,
- paper glue.

First I made the background. I tapped the ink on my non-stick craft sheet and sprayed it with water. Then I just put the water colored paper on top and rotated it around. I dried it whit my heat gun.

I die cut all the paper pieces from colored and white paper. I colored the edges with Distress Oxides.

I put some dimension to my flowers and leaves. 

And then I just glued all the pieces together. I decorated the flowers with little enamel dots and stamped the rest of the sentiment.

And this is my finished card.

See you next Sunday when I will be here again using new wedding and nested dies. You can get a sneak peak at all the beautiful new dies in Janet's video below. The new dies are already in the store.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a fun Sunday.
