the Bird and Bear

Hello Everyone:-)
Im here today with my DT post for the Stamp Spot, and I am sharing a cutie

I made using Penny Johnson's Bird & Bear for my card! I added a My Favorite Things Butterfly Trio set that actually has these three different butterflies, and I used the different papers to achieve what you see! You could use all of them separately to get more buck for your bang:-) I just like layering, LOL The sentiment is also from My Favorite Things that I had in my stash so I thought it would be an adorable add on:-)

I used some paper from my stash, and added some Cappucino Twine and tied it off with a tiny bow, a few tiny pearls were added next to a glittery brad I forgot I had.
I added a tiny bit of stickles to the flowers, not much just a touch, and my image was colored with Copic Markers.
Don't forget you still have a little bit of time left to join us in the challenge :-)
Have a great rest of the week!

I used a bear stamp from The Stamp Fairy called Critters, chubby angel

and then used Tanners one sentiment from A mothers love set that would work for others cards not just for moms as you can see:-)
I used copic markers to color my image and a technique to make his fur appear like fur from what I learned at Suzanne Deans one copic class #5 that is awesome! so yes you can color outside the lines, Thank you suzanne:-) I am adding this also to the Color Me Creative group gallery to inspire the ladies and gents there to do something "outside the box" I would never think to color outside the lines haha but I think this little guy is cute this way, kinda brings him to life:-)

I'm Here to share my Take, and sprinkle a little inspiration to you for the March Spots Challenge:-) for The Stamp Spot March monthly challenge! The challenge is to add a spot of "Green" and twine & Brads somewhere on your project:-) Easy Peasy<3

above is a picture for inspiration and below is my take on this fun challenge!

I used MFT Pure Innocence stamp set "You Color My World", which I think is a favorite of mine so far:-) In Yellow cardstock I cut out the MFT Die namics "Dizzy Doily", peeking out under my image. The spot of Twine used is layered over a piece of Red ribbon.
