Kitty Bee Spotlight

It’s that time again!!  This month’s spotlight card for Kitty Bee features an adorable little Hanging Around Bear.  I cut the image using the Silhouette and coloured him using Pro-Markers.

The background was made with the latest addition to my rapidly expanding  embossing folder collection!  I inked one side of the Darice Clouds folder with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, then ran it through the Cuttlebug to create a sky backdrop for the little bear, so that he looked like he was a long way above the ground!  The image was popped on 3D foam pads to add a little depth.

I chose a Kraft background layer to tie in with the colour of the bear and embossed it with the Darice honeycomb folder to tie in with the bees and hive.

Finally, I attached a sentiment after inking the edges with a little Vintage Paper Distress Ink, and mounted the whole panel on a white card base.

This little guy is just one of many cute images over at Kitty Bee – hurry over there now to see the others!

  1. Sweet card using that cute bear image! Love the embossed layers, especially the cloud one (do I need this?!) – I’ve had a go a few times at inking the folder before embossing, but find it a bit hit and miss, think the lighter colours like this work best?! Fab CAS card!
