Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Challenge

It's been way too long since I have posted on my stamping blog, and for that I apologize!  Life has been a way too crazy this summer and then I fell off my bike and my left hand and arm took the brunt of the fall.  I am right handed, but it still made it very hard to hold cardstock, etc., with a couple of swollen fingers and a really sore arm!

So I thought I would give it a try to do this week's Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Challenge!  It felt so good stamp and actually create something!  So how about it, ready for this week's challenge?  The sketch is found below, and when you are finished with your project you can simply load it HERE!

This week's sketch:

Who remembers Button Bear?  This is one of the first sets I got when I first started stamping back in 1998, and I will probably always keep this set around!  I stamped bear image onto a piece of watercolor paper using a StazOn inkpad.  I watercolored the bear in using Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow and Tangelo Twist inks, and then cut the image out.  The paw prints were stamped using Mossy Meadow and Tangelo Twist, and then I distressed the edges of the Very Vanilla c/s using a distressing tool.  Below is a list of what I used, and my card.

Stamp Set: Button Bear
Inks: Black StazOn, Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist
Papers: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Watercolor Paper
Accessories: Watercolor Brush, Distressing Tool, Dimensionals, Sponge, Scissors

Your bear is so cute Eileen and colored so well. It must have felt nice to stamp again, and using an image like that really softens your heart. I hope you will be able to continue creating now. I always enjoy seeing your stuff. :>)
