Hello again! It’s day 3 of the Neat and Tangled July Release Week Day 3! If you’ve been an Instagram follower, you may have seen this adorable bear in one of my sneak peaks a few days ago. This is part of today’s feature set, Schoolhouse.
This set is jaw dropping adorable! There’s way more cuteness than just this stinkin’ adorable bear and his backpack, but I’ll be saving those for some future projects. I had this chalkboard background idea swirling in my head the second I saw this set, so I wanted to share that with you today. I stamped and colored my bear with copic markers, added some details with a white gel pen, and die cut with coordinating dies.
The background was created by die cutting a piece of Ocean Tides cardstock out with the Journaling Alpha Dies in alphabetical order in random slanted directions. To create the chalkboard look, I also sponged on some white pigment ink in various places and blended it out so that they are not harsh spots. I then used white watercolor to add splatter. This piece was adhered directly onto my base A2 card.
I then heat embossed the sentiment from the set in white onto black cardstock. I trimmed the piece down to a strip to fit across my card, and adhered it with foam tape. And finally, I placed my bear in the bottom right side of the card and adhered it with foam tape.
