The Character Cafe BLOG HOP





Thanks for stopping by my blog today…the FIRST stop along the way in The Character Cafe Blog hop!  Today, I am using “Bernard Bear”.  Isn’t he just ADORABLE!?  Kendra & Kelly have really outdone themselves the last 2 months!  These images just keep getting better & better and I am very proud to be a part of this TEAM!!!

This is for a boy’s  birthday, so I chose to keep it SUPER SIMPLE!  Details of my project:

  • Image – Bernard Bear from The Character Cafe
  • Patterned Paper – Piggy Tales Tortoise & the Hare
  • Skittles – Dyed with Ranger Alcohol Ink in Lettuce
  • Copics – E33, BG10, B26, YR09, G82, G12, RV00, E99, YR67, B24, YR07, E57, C3, E31, B29

PS – I tried taking photos outside to make the colors look better, but instead, it just washed them out.  The one paper is orange, NOT PINK!  *sigh*  One day I’ll get it right!  smile_eyeroll

Kendra said...

Billie, you're colouring/shading is fantastic and well, a cloudy day is best for photo taking ;) Love this card (pink and all! LOL)... great job (and thanks!)

Hey Billie,

I think you did a great job and your coloring is really good too!!! If you take pictures outside make sure your flash is off it just washes out the colors for some reason, and I got my OTT light this summer and have never taken another picture outside it just does and amazing job on getting the true colors to come out. If you look around and wait a few weeks Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, and Michaels usually have them 50% off every few weeks or so I got the $115 lamp for $45 and I have been very very happy with it since I got it!!!

But don't feel bad your picture is still wonderful and I just love that Bear image and I agree the images just keep getting better and better and better every month not sure how much better they can get LOL!!!! I loved this release!!! (Not that I have not loved all the others too because I sure have but I think this was my favorite so far!!!)


Kelly said...

This is so cute. Guess I am going to have to get into the Copics

little cardmaker said...

This is too cute. I'm so using this digi next. I've found pics in the shade (instead of direct sunlight) work best for me.
