Tuesday Morning Sketches #169 - Stamp Fairy!

Good morning! If I do say so myself, I have an adorable card to show you this morning - all thanks to Stamp Fairy, who generously provided the DT at Tuesday Morning Sketches with images of our choice to showcase! I picked this SUPER sweet teddy image knowing it would work perfectly with this week's sketch by Melissa:

Supplies: papers & sentiment from My Mind's Eye;
image from Stamp Fairy;
Liquid Pearls, clear glitter glue;
Stampendous Fun Flock - Cotton Ball;
Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo distress inks;
vintage buttons from stash


There is so much fun dimension going on! I printed out 4 copies of the image so that I could do some layering. My printer ink doesn't set well, so I spray it with sealant (when I can find it) or hairspray (if I can't). These images were sprayed with hairspray, and look at the fun texture that created! Even my husband said it looked like fur & touched it. 
After colouring in the 4 images, I trimmed out - the bear & snowball (without the scarf tail) and then the paw & snowball, popping up each layer on foam tape. I've also added some Fun Flock to the fuzzy parts of his hat, and some Liquid Pearls & glitter glue to the curve of the snowball. I'm ridiculously pleased with how this turned out :)
**REMINDER**

Soooooo cute! I would never ever have thought to use hairspray as a sealant - but it looks fab (and probably smells great too!) Great dimension with all those wonderful layers.

Love all those buttons lined up like snowballs! This card is so cute. Great tip to use hairspray--I'll have to give that a try sometime.
