Miss Ink Stamps – Sending Big Bear Hugs

Happy Thursday everyone! It’s time for some more inspiration from the Miss Ink Stamps area of my craft room. Today I’m sharing a scene card featuring the Bear Hugs stamp set. I hadn’t played with this one yet because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to create. So instead of having a plan, I stamped all the images from the set and just sat down for a while and colored. It was fantastic!

I used the scan-n-cut to cut everything out and just started playing with the images like little paper dolls. Moving them here and there, arranging them in different mini scenes until I finally landed on this super sweet, very full night time scene.

I inked up an A2 size panel with tea dye, gathered twigs and chipped sapphire distress oxide inks. I spritzed the panel and flicked gold watercolor on the sky portion. While that was drying I decided which images were layering together and used liquid glue to adhere them. Then I added foam tape to the back of everything, doubling up in some areas.

I adhered the inked panel to a white card base and added my images starting with the cave and first baby bear. I worked my way out from there. Last, I added the small tree in the distance, the moon and sentiment directly to the card front with liquid glue.

For finishing touches I just added glossy accents to the bear’s noses and the moon. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the yellow part of the campfire flames.

I absolutely adore this scene and how it all came together. These images are so sweet and fun to color!
