Loonie Stamper's Challenge #118 - One Layer Wonder

The Loonie Girls are at it again this week with a great challenge.  This time it was Regan's turn to pick the challenge and she went with a one layer card.  Well, that's no real challenge for me!!  LOL!!  But I'm pretty sure there will be a few loonies struggling with this one!

I was also looking around on another blog and saw something about a "shape" on the front of the card which reminded me of this cute bear stamp I got from Cornish Heritage Farms (which is no longer in business) and have yet to use.  Can you believe it!!  I knew I wanted to make a shaped card from him and these 2 ideas blended together to result in this one layer shaped card!!!


I stamped the image onto a regular 5.5 x 4.25 folded card.  Then I cut around the top of the image leaving a place at the bottom for a sentiment.  I colored him in with my Copic markers.  I checked out a few tutorials on how to add fur (I clearly need more practice ... and markers!!).  I added some doodling lines around the bottom edge and a sentiment from Everyday Classics (anniversary set from Papertrey Ink). 

I love how this turned out!!  Better than I had even imagined!!   I think I might re-create a few and change up the colors.

Now off to see what the Loonie girls created:
Regan, Dee, Wendy, Jewels, Maria, Char

Thanks for dropping in!  Have a wonderful Sunday, hopefully filled with lots of craftiness!!!

Gorgeous card, I was trying to work out how you had made a shaped card fit your image so perfectly, I can't believe you cut it out it looks just so professional. An amazing card, thank you for the inspiration.
