Hi, Bloggin' Buddies!
For whatever reason, I am currently very into bears and this Impression Obsession one has to be one of my all-time favorite stamps. I've used it many times, but certainly never in this way! I had an idea for this card and put it all together and then I decided that this guy simply didn't look festive enough. I thought perhaps he needed a party hat and I had nothing that seemed to "fit". The "Birthday Wish" set was on my table and I got an idea.........a bit crazy? Well YES! I played around with one of the cakes in the set and created a festive party hat.
On top of everything else (dare I say that?!), in my 50 years of card making I don't believe I've ever added anything I've handwritten, but hey.........it worked.
I used Distress Oxide Ink for blending around the bear and placed everything on an ombre blended background. The hat is embellished with Wink of Stella and Stickles.
