Fizzy Moon Beer Bear

Hi everyone, still waiting for a call. Sorry ironing pile...you're not getting done today!

Here's the card I've made for my late husband's dad. I know he won't find my blog so I'm safe to post it before his birthday. My hubby bought me 20 Fizzy Moon stamps from Create and Craft a few weeks ago. I couldn't resist this one...




I've coloured him using Copics and used a fab product for the head on the beer...it's called Fluff and is made by Woodware. It comes in a small bottle with a fine nozzle. Just add it to your image and heat with a heat gun. It's amazing... Here's a close-up...
I used Spellbinder labels 22 to frame the image, inking the white one with frayed burlap ink whilst still in the die. I've threaded ribbon through the image plate and wrapped it round a red corrugated square. The spotty backing paper has been in my stash for donkey's years so it's good to use it up. Gives me an excuse to buy more....as if I need an excuse! Here's a close-up of the layers...
The sentiment is LOTV, cut using Spellbinder Stately circles die. I've decorated the inside to compliment the front...
I would like to enter this for the following challenges:-
Natalie and Amy - die cuts 
Addicted to stamps - use a stamp 
Simon says stamp - anything goes 
Joanna Sheen - Layer it up 
Penny Black and More - March Challenge - One for the boys 
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes + tic tac toe (Die cuts, stamp, free) 

Thank you so much for visiting me and for the lovely comments you leave me. They mean a lot.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
