Beary Sweet Couple

 Today's card is a shameless CASE of Lori Hairston's adorable little bear card. From the sweet bear couple (one of her freebies), to the fold over card, to the twine around it, I pretty much copied her lovely card because how could you improve on what she created?!
 Here's Lori's Card
I printed my bear couple on watercolor cardstock and colored them in with prismacolor pencils. After blending I added some details with my sharpie markers. A tiny bow and some glittered flowers also add a pop of interest to the image(s).

I laid down some Distress Crayon on my work surface, picked it up with a baby wipe, and smudged some around each image for a little more color before distressing the edges.

Supplies and Tools:
Bear Couple Freebie, Distress Crayons (Spun Sugar & Salty Ocean), Distress Oxide (Worn Lipstick & Broken China), Black Soot Distress Ink, Plaid Background Stamp (Impression Obsession), Scholar Prismacolor Pencils, Baby Oil (for blending), Martha Stewart Border Punch, Love This Die (Echo Park), Glitter, Sharpie Markers, Sequins, Choose Happiness (Stampin' Up), Doily Tag, Heart Punch
