cuddlesome storybook greeting card

Recently, I’ve noticed a few card-makers sharing something called “storybook coloring”. If you haven’t seen it or heard of it, it’s a softer style of coloring that allows more white space to show (usually along the edges) and provides an overall lighter feel. I thought I would give it a try with an image from the cuddlesome stamp set by Penny Black. The sweet bear and stack of tea cups provided lots of space to work with color.

sentiment: Hello Sunshine (Simon Says Stamp)

In keeping with the softer look of the finished image, I layered the image over soft pastel patterned paper (Stampin’ UP!, from my stash). The layout is based on a sketch used previously HERE. While making it, I was thinking about a recent visit to see family and how nice it was to sit down with my cousin in the evening and just chat. She made a nice herbal blend for us, right from her garden – it was such a blessing!
