I have shown you a couple of ‘Baby Bear’ cards now but I realised I hadn’t shown you the Colour Cards for the bears that I made up some weeks ago. You might have seen some similar around your blog travels but I thought I would make some to show my ladies coming to my classes so they can see the difference.
Just a couple of notes before you see the colour cards.
~If you are not sure already, when I mention stamp the colour off, it means to ink up the stamp and lightly stamp on some scrap paper to lighten the colour.
~Each of the stamps in the ‘Baby Bear’ set have numbers. You will notice the more solid stamp has #1 next to it, the next more patterned stamp is #2, the more detailed pattern is #3. You might find that some people stamp in reverse order so the darker colour first which would be #3 and then work backwards to the lighter colour Play around yourself to see what you feel more comfortable with and what way gives you the better effect. I found going from #1 with the lighter colour up to #3 with the darker one to be work fine.
~When I note the number below the colour card that denotes the number on the stamp. eg. #1 is the numbered 1 stamp.
~When stamping the bear some people have said they have had trouble lining up the bear for each stamp. What I found that helps is when you ink up and go to stamp the 2nd stamp, I line the inked image up with the stamped one by lining up it’s bottom and then lining up the ears. I have found that helps a lot. Hope it might help you.
#1 Soft Sky, #2 Pool Party, #3 Bermuda Bay.
#1 Blushing Bride (stamped off first), #2 Blushing Bride, #3 Flirty Flamingo.
#1 Crumb Cake, #2 Soft Suede (stamped off first), Soft Suede.
#1 Sweet Sugarplum (stamped off first), #2 Sweet Sugarplum, #3 Rich Razzleberry.
You can play around with all different colour combinations. What colours have you done? I would love to know.
I do love this bear. It is very cute and I love the detail of it’s fur.
Thanks for visiting me today.
