Sabrina's hosting this week's Ways to Use It challenge, WT627 Handwriting- Yes, You're Own! Yup, Sabrina wants to see our own handwriting on our cards. Bwahahahaha! Just to not scare you away from the challenge, illegible writing is definitely an option! I decided to challenge myself with just a wee little sentiment banner. It's a good thing I save the trimmed ends from cutting my own card bases. It took at least ten tries before I had a sentiment I was comfortable with. I've pinned several tutorials on hand lettering, I definitely need to practice!
I just love how SCS friends share images. This one is from Jan (heartsong47), thanks Jan! I've been having fun experimenting with colored pencils and gamsol. This sweet little bear worked out perfectly. I masked him and added some flowers behind his back and colored the image. Used a sketch from July 2015 and some of my paper stash. Die cut the frame and trimmed out the diagonal paper with a white scalloped piece.
Added my sentiment banner and a flower brad to finish. TFL

Aren't you smart, masking him to add the flowers, in fact aren't you a genius. He reminds me of DH, LOL. And he is very sweet. Thanks for being brave enough to write your own sentiment. I went through three word bubbles last week writing mine for my bespectacled bird, sigh...

I love everything about this adorable card! Beautiful colors and I love that DP. It was just a bear image and you added the flowers behind his back? Brilliant! And a perfect handwritten sentiment to go with it!
