There's a new(ish) Mix It Up Challenge at Ellen Hutson right now! This month they are looking for participants to combine Essentials by Ellen stamps with Concord & 9th. I looked through my sets and came up with this:
Initially, I thought I might combine this All Inside bear with a birch tree background using Tree Hugs from Concord & 9th. Once I started playing around, I decided that a clean and simple card with a C&9th sentiment would look better. The bear is stamped in grey ink, embossed and coloured with Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment is embossed in white on a deep red panel. Since I hadn't used any black, I matted the panel on white and then on a grey card base.
With my bear hugging his hearts, I'm entering this in the current CASology challenge, where the cue word is HUG.
