Colorless Blender

So proud of Kaitie for her accomplishments in volleyball.  So Kaitie, this card will be arriving in your mailbox very soon, right after I share how it was created.  🙂

The fuzzy bear image from Stamps By Judith and Heather was masked into the square shape which is also an image from Stamps By Judith and Heather.  Mr. Bear was colored with COPIC Markers: E41, E43, E44, and E47.  Once I was satisfied with the the blending of these shades of brown, it was time to pull out the colorless blender refill ink, and a small section of textured fabric cut from a bath towel or washcloth. 

Squirt a little of the colorless blender solution on to the portion of textured fabric and dab it over the colored bear image creating a textured fuzzy appearance for this bear’s over-grown fur coat.  Isn’t that the coolest?  The squares were layered on colored paper and adhered to the main cardstock base.  The middle bear image was adhered upside down to give this card a little personality.  A typed greeting was printed from the computer, layered on colored cardstock, and attached to each bear image as if he were holding a sign. A few black dots were added to each square with a black COPIC Multi-Liner pen. 

This card is now ready to be mailed to Kaitie!
