Together forever, never apart, - Catch the bug - Free Friday

Friday April 21, 2017
 
Are you ready for another Free Friday from the Bugaboo Store?? You can see inspiration at Catch the bug the design teams cards using this fun image.. It's a favorite of mine.. Boy Bear..
 
 
 

 
So for this card I wanted to have a colorful background.. So dug through my OLD gelli plate lost but found papers.. I found this awesome colorful paper.. I backed it with some brown card stock and added to Kraft card base. I chose a Mama Elephant sentiment and embossed it in white. I added some twine next to the sentiment. I used a Spellbinder die and cut out the bear and colored Boy Bear with copics. I didn't like the plain background around the bear so I colored it in light blue (also in the gelli plate paper) and then took Tim Holtz stickle stencil and Ranger ink green (picks up the colors in the background gelli paper).  I liked the look. I added the image using foam dots to the Gelli paper. I added some clear Nuvo drops around the card. I like how the clear drops pick up the color behind the drops..
I hope you pick this cute free image up.. You will enjoy playing with this cute bear. To get inspiration head over to Catch the bug.
