Lilac Bear

The challenge at Just cute bears this week is a colour one ....Lilac, and as #i've never coloured a lilac bear I thought I'd have a go...not sure if I've gone overboard with the lilac, there is a splash of know me there has to be pink. I spritzed the background with gold and purple pansy glimmer mists rubbed crystal stickles onto at well for a glittery effect then distressed the edges with purlple concord distress inks.
other challenges are:
Stamp with fun.....Theme is stitches, I've machined and added faux stitches to this card.
Truly Scrumptious...followed the the idea of the eyelets to add ribbon.
Our creative corner....try a new technique, after watching Tim Holtz this week do his grunge loving it, I had never rubbed stickles onto the background before to get a glittery effect, worked really well.
