7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Strip It Down

This is a scheduled post, I am away on holidays and will be back next week to wander around your blogs and gather inspiration from your beautiful projects.

Now it's time for a second challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Strip It Down. It's actually set by me this week and I DO NOT plan to interfere with the amount of clothing you sport while crafting. The challenge is to use NO MORE THAN 2 LAYERS ON YOUR PROJECT not counting the image.

We have wonderful prize for offer, just remember to use a stamp available at 7 Kids College Fund to qualify!

I used my brand new Popcorn The Bear stamp - isn't he just uber cute and suitable for so many occasions. He is also a breeze to colour!

All the colouring is done with Copic Markers. I first stamped on patterned paper, did the shadowing with markers and then cut out the coloured in bear and balloons. Shaped the images slightly with embossing tool (read - the back of ballpoint pen) and layered on with glue gel.

All the balloons were covered with either Sakura clear glaze pen (the ones on back) or Glossy Accents (the ones in front).

Copic Markers:
Fur: E39/37/35/34/33/31/00, Y00/21
Sack: E34/41/40, Y28, YR32/12
Shadow|: W5/3/1/00, 0
I forgot to write down the markers I used on balloons.

IMAGE: SMILE Popcorn the Bear Stamp
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers, Sakura Stardust pensSpica glitter pen
Paper: Basic Grey Origins
Accessories: Stickles,  microfine glitter flatback pearls, Basic Grey stickers, ribbonInkssentials white gel pen, lace ribbon, glossy accentsTools: ATG adhesive gun, paper piercer,  glue gel, Purple Cow guillotine, Martha Stewart scoring board, glue gun

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
