I had a great time visiting some of your blogs last week to check out your entries and to leave comments. Did you make it to my teamies blogs to leave them some blog love?
Congratulations go to Cass as our featured artist from last week's entries and to Faye as the winning commenter. Enjoy your prize!!!
I've made two new type of cards in a row, a circular step card yesterday(scroll down to check it out and maybe leave a comment so I know you've been) and today's card is a recessed window (box) card. I watched a tutorial for a square card and decided my image needed a rectangular card so I sat down and worked out how to make it that shape instead. I think it worked out okay! I've also decorated the inside using the same DP and a diecut for writing on. ( Haven't scanned that yet)
I got to play with this cute little Indian bear paddling his canoe. I had fun colouring him. Not real sure about the background as I chose to brayer it with ink after I had coloured the image. I had to make a mask for the little bear and I also punched a circle to mask the sun too. I sponged the sun with SU Daffodil Yellow Ink. The card looks better in real life than it does in the picture. I tried to scan it but that was worse because of the recessed area. I added some tree diecuts and a "real" bear digi I had in my files, I can't say who made it because it was from when I first started saving digis and hadn't put the artist's name with them.
So onto the card........
