Awwwww, so Cute and Cuddly!

The challenge this week at Sweet Stampin' is "Cute & Cuddly". The Stamp Fairy is our sponsor this week and provided me with this bear image!  Thank you, Gerda at the Stamp Fairy, for this stamp!

As a note, the black on the bears is marker, not the stamp. The digi stamp image is all open with no solid parts. I chose to make my two bears look like pandas. The stamp of the birch tree, shrubs and stream are an old stamp and I have no idea who marketed it. I used a Stampin' Up folder for the clouds and a Fiskars punch for the grass. I colored the image with copics, although the black on the pandas is just plain black Sharpie pen. I used watercolor paints on the trees, shrubs and stream.

Thanks to our monthly sponsor, The Ribbon Girl for donating a £10 voucher and to our weekly sponsor, The Stamp Fairy. The Design Team at Sweet Stampin' has some great cards to inspire you, so please stop by the challenge blog and I look forward to seeing your "Cute & Cuddly" cards!
