Parasol Bear in Purple

I was checking out the latest challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog, and I just HAD to give this one a shot.  Their challenge is Shades of Purple.  I love purple, so I rooted through my studio and pulled out this adorable Bear with Parasol stamp and colored it with Copic markers.

Isn't that bear just darling??  I cut it out after I colored it, and then set it aside while I composed the rest of the card.  I sponged some blue ink at the top of some white cardstock, and then I sponged some green ink at the bottom.  I used the Simple Whitewash technique from Technique Junkies on the fence and then I sanded it just a little bit to give it a more weathered look.

I cut out the grass twice, adhered one strip to the bottom of the white cardstock, adhered the fence, and then adhered a second strip of grass in front of the fence.  I cut the daisies from some pale yellow cardstock and I cut their stems from some green cardstock.  I used white brads to adhere the daisies together, and then I adhered the flowers and their stems to the card.  The Quickie Glue Pen is perfect for glueing down these strips of grass, the fence, and the flower stems.  All the dies I've used here are from Cheery Lynn Designs.

The following supplies that I used on this card were purchased from Classy Cards 'n Such:

Bear with Parasol (Stampavie)
