Just Cute Bears Challenge :-)

Oh I missed the last Just Cute Bears Challenge ,,, along with several others that I would have loved to join in ,,, Winter Wonderland ,, Kraftin kimmie ,,,Anyone for Anya loads ,,, but time just got the better of me so I am going to try harder this week :-)

I thought I would start with the new Just Cute Bears Challenge :-) This is already their 4th Challenge and Jane
has made a lovely sketch for us to follow :-)

I just couldn't wait to ink up my new Kraftim Kimmie stamp from Bunny Zoe's Crafts ,, I love these stamps and have been thinking of getting this one since their last blog hop ,,, This one is called Dance Recital,, cute eh :-) I coloured the image with copics and added stardust stickles to the ring of flowers, shoes and copics glitter pen to her ribbon :-) I used pinkish pigment ink and sparkle EP around the edges. I don't know who made the paper,, and I only had one 12x12 sheet which has all finished now so will have to keep a look out for some more ,, I loved this one for 'ballet' , I know you can't see much of it tho ,,, which is why I used acetate so I wouldn't cover it completely :-) I cuttlebugged the acetate using a music folder which was inked with black stazon ,,,

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set ;-)

I hope you don't mind but I missed off a couple of dots in the bottom left corner ,, they just didn't look right on the spotty ribbon :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

OK am coming to see what you've all been doing today :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
