Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #6 Card 3


Here is another card for the Inky Paws Challenge #6 which is a color challenge. So when looking at the Campfire Tails set earlier this week I had the idea of making a night time campfire scene with this bear who I absolutely adore. So I gave it a shot and after an hour or more of messing around it looked awful and I threw it out in frustration. But I decided I was not done with the idea so the next night a I tried again with a different game plan in mind. The background in Distress Ink and I fussy cut the bear and marshmallow stick colored with Copics. I took a lot of care to think about how the light coming off the fire would effect the scene (which is what made it such an epic fail the first time) but this time I'm happy with the way it turned out. In fact I'm not sure I'm ready to give this card away. I think it might just stay in my crafty space to remind me how it is important to persevere. Anyway go check out the challenge and their fabulous stamps. If a few more people enter they will be increasing the prize pool to two prizes and you can even use their free digital stamps. I'm also entering this into the washi tape challenge at Ribbon Carousel. I added some tapes last minute to tie in the challenge colors a bit more including the yellow and then the white grid print. This is probably a simple challenge for most crafters because those rolls of washi tape are too cute to resist sometimes so we all have some.
