Just Cute Bears #25 - Sketch...

Time for a new challenge from Just Cute Bears!
This week we have a fabulous sketch from the lovely Helen, great sketch Helen! I have added it to my little sketch book :)
I have tried something different for a change, with minimal colouring too! I drew inspiration from the piece of white printed Kraft I found in my scrap box. It was the perfect size for my
6 x 6 card and the sketch!
I have stamped the FF image onto Kraft with brown ink and I have also stamped little flowers over the Kraft horizontal strip with white then brown ink.
The other new thing I have tried is using embossing powder to edge the cardstock for a distressed look! I think I was a bit heavy handed with the ink on the horizontal strip!! but it did'nt go too bad around the main image and I like the look so I will have to try it again :)
What do you think???
We have the fabulous Meljen Designs as our sponsor's this week and one lucky winner will receive 3 cute teddy images :)

Do check out the Just Cute Bears blog to see all fabulous DT cards and I look forward to seeing all your teddy creations x

Thanks for looking xx

Stunning card Jenny - I love the white on Kraft! The embossing powder edging looks fab...I've done that using red and gold before on Christmas cards when I couldn't find the right colour inkpads! lol
Glad you liked my sketch :0)
