Card Sketch #66 - RAK from Sweden

Here is sketch #66 - it measures 5 x 5. This stamped image came to me all the way from Sweden - I won a RAK from Cards By Maria and received a set of four stamps! This teddy bear stole my heart!

After stamping the image - it just begged out for me to cut out it's parts and pop them up for a cool 3D effect. I almost thought about putting some brads in so it would be movable, but all the brads I have are too big for this image.

Teddy is colored using Copic Ciao Markers. The back ground panels were done so long ago, I'm not sure how I did them. I do know that they are done on glossy paper and it appears that I used some alcohol inks, too. I tend to experiment with different techniques for back grounds, and then stash them away for future use. I guess I need to start writing on the back what it was I did! =) I used my rectangle nestabilities to cut out and emboss the main image.

So, hop on over to Cards by Maria, she does publish her blog in English so we can read it - and she also makes her own stamps! Thanks for the new fun rubbah, Maria!

Today is National Scrapbooking day - off to participate! Have a wonderful weekend!
