Mixing It Up, Part I

It's a rainy Tuesday here, so it seems like a fine time to post a couple of cards for the current Ellen Hutson Mix It Up challenge! The latest challenge is to mix some Winnie and Walter goodies with Essentials by Ellen. For the first card, I kept things relatively clean and simple:

I think this is pretty cute! My bear is coloured with markers, while the sentiment is watercoloured for a nice soft look. I liked the interest leaving the elements off-centre adds to the card. (It does for me, at least. :D) 

This card also fits two other current challenges: Shopping Our Stash's What's the Good Word challenge (use die cut words) and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies
Back later with a second card! 


Supplies: Bazzill marshmallow cardstock, Spectrum Noir cardstock, Strathmore watercolour paper, Essentials by Ellen All Inside stamps and dies, Winnie & Walter In a Word: Hugs die, Versafine smokey grey & Ranger classic cherry inks, Spectrum Noir markers, Kuretake Gansai watercolours, MFT blueprints 24 stitched rectangle die, glue dots

Pin It Now!

Super sweet, I just love this bear and the heart with the word is perfect!

Yes... off-centered is just right-- it goes perfectly with the "bouncy" word die-- and on that note, thank you for sharing at SOS this week!

Oh my!!! I've never seen a more adorable bear!! Love how it's standing on this fabulous die cut word, beautifully water colored.
Thank you for joining us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you come back and play again soon.

That bear! He's so cute! Excellent pairing of that adorable bear with the hugs die! And yes, I agree, I like the off-centeredness of your element placement. Looks cool!
