Blast from the Past Time!

Good Morning!

I can't believe this is already Wednesday....where has the week gone?!

It is also the 11th Blast from the Past Blog Hop, by Taylored Expressions.  There has been a BFTP Blog Hop for almost a year now....crazy!

This month, not only did we get an awesome sketch from Sankari, but Taylor also challenged us to "make it masculine".

I started by stamping this adorable bear, from Beary Special.  Then, I added the balloon from Beary Special Accessories.  I coloured everything with my copics, then paper pieced the ears, feet and belly of the bear.  I added a few coats of Clear Glaze to the balloon to give it a little bit of shine.

The sketch isn't completely how it was shown, but the basic concept is there!  The papers are from MME Fine & Dandy True Blue.  I have also used lots of Kraft paper, making this a sweet little card for Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday #51.

To finish the card off, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment (from Make a Wish), cut it out, and mounted it on top of a star that was die-cut using the MFT Stacking Stars Die-namic.  I added three square brads from MME, and that's it!

Enjoy!  Make sure you hop along to all the participant's blogs to see their great creations!  There is a list of all the hoppers at the bottom of this post!

Great job Jess! Love this image and now I've got to find those brads! Such an enabler you are... sigh!! Oh and I love that touch of blue shading behind him. Very tricky for me to get the right amount and here you did a perfect job! Love it! Thanks for playing along in my That's Krafty Thursday challenge! {{{hen hugs}}}
