Here's my card for Susie's challenge.
Way cool - I got some Lili of the Valley stamps a couple of months ago when they had a sale, and already this week I've got to use 3 of them. Isn't this little bear a sweetie? Total indulgence, since I now only have one small nephew left, the rest have all hit their teens.
For the base, I covered a piece of card with foil tape and embossed it with the plaid ef. Then I sponged over it with black acrylic, and when that was dry I used Versamark to add the Aged Teal Frantage.
Image panel - stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with forest moss, gathered twigs, vintage photo, frayed burlap, brushed cordurou, old paper, pine needles, scattered straw, pumice stone, antique linen, black soot, tumbled glass, seedless preserves. I used Liquid Appliglue for the suds, Glossy Accents on the headlights, windscreen and his goggles.
I used one strip of the paper I used on Julie's card to look a bit like luggage straps, with tiny copper brads. Image is layered on Core-dinations embossed with SU Square Lattice and sponged with Walnut Stain.

Oh my goodness, this is amazing. So much has gone into this card Sabrina, everything I look at is a incredible. The background looks like old tiles..WOW. The image is super cute and your colouring, as always, is terrific. You should save this for your B.I.L. (he was a little boy once) and your little bear looks very much like a Koala. This gorgeous card would look very much at home in Australia !!!
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
