Simons Says......It's Sketch Time!!

We are thrilled to welcome a new team member at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge -  TARA who has happily joined our Simon Says family, and we couldn't be more excited!!! Welcome Tara! Please head to her blog to say 'Hello' and leave some love !!!


This week we have a beautiful sketch done by our very own Domi! Also, this week, the Design Team is showcasing Crafters Companion stamps Popcorn Bear & SWALK stamps!Simon Says Stamp has an amazing selection of all of them, and they are TOO GOOD to pass up!! So head on over to the store and check them out!!!!!

I took myself out of my comfort zone this week - I'm not really a 'bear' person and not too good a colouring them - so a bear I chose!! I do have to admit I really enjoyed colouring Popcorn and hope I now have overcome my bear 'phobia' This image is Birthday Hugs - gosh he is a huge bear - and such a cutie!! He is coloured with the usual Copics and I've used Kaiser - Lilac Avenue papers. The border is cut with a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Hearts to cut out the buttons,  I cut a few layers, punched the holes with a Cropodile and coated them with 
Glossy Accents. Looking at them on screen I feel they are a little too glossy for the card and will probably remove them and leave them matt.
The little wooden Teddy bear button I found in my stash and coloured it with Copics, the ribbon is also from my stash.

This week, the prize is a WHOPPING $50 voucher from Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!! Whheeeeeehoooooo!!!!!! How exciting eh?? So, get out your stamps and start creating!!! We can't wait to see what you create!!!! Have a great week & good luck!

Love the colour combinntion & that orange red heart in Porpcorn's ear is a real masterstoke the way it is carried through into the little button & those heart buttons - they look fine on screen. The bear colouring is a joy - love those highlights & the life you've given him & Souffle just makes me giggle.
