Springtime Barry

StampFairy are sponsoring CRAFT challenges this week, and the challenge this week is a photo inspiration.

Firstly, I'll show you my card.  It features one of the recent Barry Spring images.  I've painted him using DI re-inkers and have sewn some green bakers twine into the image to make the swing ropes, sewing the twine in and out of the image panel where I think that the bear would show in front and behind the rope.  I frayed the ends underneath the seat and glued them down so they wouldn't fray any further.

and here's the photo inspiration.  The pink on my card is maybe a bit on the pale side, but my flowers are cherry blossom, the colour scheme is pink and blue, and I've created a blue sky on my image with my chalky clouds.

Card Recipe:
I've been inspired by:
  • Creative Creations - Letter B (blooms, bear, border die)
  • ABC - Just as you like (cute, bears, painted with DIs rather than go for the quick option of copics, pink, blue, pastel, shaped, flowers, pearls etc etc etc!!!)
  • Crafty Boots Challenge - Flowers
Happy Crafting
