Sweet Stop Saturday Sketch 21

I'm trying to branch out and get into some other challenges. Last month I had a blast with the Midnight Madness crafters and I'll definitely stop over there every once in a while for a challenge and unique tutorials. This month I decided to have some fun with the challenges at the Sweet Stop blog.

This adorable bear is from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps. I downloaded it a while ago and even had him all colored, but just haven't had the time to decorate him onto a card. Until now!

I tried something a bit different on this card. To make the layered brown paper match around the bear image I colored them with my Prismacolor markers. The brown paper offset behind the bear was all markers. After I colored the paper with my Dark Brown and Eggplant markers, I grabbed the leaf stamp I used on the card base and lightly covered it with rubbing alcohol and stamped onto the paper. It shows up as a light bleaching affect. I'll have to play with this technique a bit more.(You can click on the card to see a larger image and possibly the technique I'm trying to describe.)
