Sweet Sunday Bear Hugs

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC196.

I wanted to do a little colouring so I reached for one of the Pure Innocence stamp sets from My Favorite Things. I decided to use Pure Innocence Bear Hugs because she is just so darn cute!!! I wanna squeeze her!

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Kraft. Next I added some Nightshift Blue and Berrylicious.

For the image, I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her with copic markers. I fussy cut around her and adhered her with foam tape for a little dimension. I used the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics to cut out the Kraft layer behind her.

In the background I used the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds stamped with Nightshift Blue Premium Dye Ink to add pattern to the dark layer, and the stripes from Plaid Builder Background, stamped with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, to add pattern to the Berrylicious layer. A strip of Banana Split grosgrain ribbon ties in the yellow of her shirt. I added a talk bubble for the small sentiment, using the Chat Bubbles Die-namics to cut out the Sweet Tooth piece, then shortening one end of it by running it through the die cutting machine again. The sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

On the inside I added the image again, stamped with Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink, and another sentiment from Pure Innocence Bear Hugs.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
