Popcorn the Bear Birthday

I absolutely love this cute stamp set that Liz sent me in the valentine swap kit we did through FCCB!

I coloured him in with Distress Markers and a water brush on watercolour paper. I love the way the Distress Markers create a more muted colour palette. They really are lovely to watercolour with!

I added Stickles and a clear sparkly Jellyroll gel pen for glimmer. 

The banner openings were already cut into the card base so I backed the opening with a border strip from my kit and then added bakers twine and two adorable mini clothes pins. I added some Distress Marker and sparkly gel pen around each opening. 

For the inside I stamped a sentiment included with the bear set and attached it to the same border strip as the front.  I added the cute duck, also watercoloured, to the bottom. 

This would be a cute little boy or baby birthday card!

Be sure to watch for an upcoming post featuring all the goodies that came in the kit and the super cute Valentine card Liz sent, along with a recap of all the cards I've made with it!
