Whiff of Joy December Post #1

Good morning everyone!! Can you believe the weekend is over already? We had a pretty quiet, nice weekend. We watched V8 racing, my oldest daughter came down for a visit, Kevin and I went out to Dinner with my previous Boss on Saturday night and that is pretty much it!  It was a nice weekend. Too bad it is over! I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!

Today I am posting my first Whiff of Joy project for December. For this card I decided to go with a Friendship Card:

There is my Beary Special Friendship card :)  I've used Beary Best Friends which you can find in the Whiff of Joy Shop. I added some twine and ribbon, a Sizzix die cut, a Cheery Lynn swirl die cut, and some flowers. The paper in the back is spritzed with several different paints and embossed. The bear and bee are colored with Copic Markers and a small amount of decoupage was done.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Bear: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9; E31, E33, E34, E35
  • Honey Pot: E95, E97, E99; R56, R46, R59
  • Honey: Y11, Y15, Y19, Y38; R56, R46, R59
  • Bee: Y11, Y15, Y19; C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Honey Stick: E31, E34, E35

I am so glad you shared your project & creativity at 613 Ave C once again Susan! I really like the coloring of the bear on this project... making his snout brown and the rest of him grey really works! (I assume that is honey all over his face??) Your shadows and highlights are really well done on him too. He's really cute!
Oh, and by the way, would you consider switching from word verification to comment moderation instead? Word verification slows down the commenting process painfully - and many times DTs will just not leave a comment because of it. I switched over and have been quite happy using Comment Moderation. Thanks for considering it!
