Everyone who played along in last month's challenge received Pen Pal Bear for free. It has a version with the sentiment and one without. If you decide to hop on and play along in the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge, then you can purchase this digital by clicking HERE (or on the watermark above to head to its location in the store). This way you'll receive next month's digital stamp for free.

Here are my card and details...

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date.
  • I was inspired by an old From the Heart Stamps sketch for this card.




FRONT

Digital Image Details:
  • Pen Pal Bear: You can find this image in the store. Details above. 
  • This image was coloured digitally using my new Rebelle program:
    •  The background was 'air-brushed'. 
    • The remainder was mostly 'watercoloured', with a bit of 'markers' work.

Digital Embellishment Details:
  • The flowers are from the Another Tea Party set (details below).
INSIDE

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • The sentiment on the inside was created by Paulette from Create with TLC. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store. Both have been recoloured to suit the purposes of this project.


OVERALL
Digital Paper Products:
  • The paper used for the background on the front and inside, along with the paper used as an accent pieces on the front are from the Another Tea Party kit designed by Coreene Silke and is available at ComputerScrapbook.

Digital Embellishments:
  • I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the image and the sentiment. 
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
