"Beary" tall card


It's a new week!! And I have a CCEE challenge card to share with you today. This month we're "Shaping Up!", and this week it's with a tall card. I used Jen's fabulous SFYTT sketch to help me get the mojo going.

I fell in love with this adorable Penny Black image, called Candy Cane Perch, the moment I saw it. Isn't he precious? And he's so much fun to watercolor too. I stamped this cutie with Versamark onto 140 lb coldpress watercolor paper and embossed him with Black Detail ep. I then watercolored him with Tombows and an aqua pen. The edges are all ink distressed with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress), the snowflakes are from Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 and the Snowflake Borderabilities. The sentiment is from the set Holiday Expressions by Inkadinkado. I stamped it with Vintage Sepia (Versafine), and embossed it with Clear Detail ep.

Now you won't want to miss what the other CCEE gals have done for their tall cards, so head on over to the CCEE Stampers blog. We'd love to have you participate too. Just make a tall card and link it by using Mr. Linky. It's really quite easy!

That's it for today.
Thank you so very much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!!
