Inkspirational Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Hey there!  I'm finally back designing for Inkspirational after taking some time off.  I missed my Ink buddies but I needed that rest. :-).  So, here I am, back at it again, hoping to inspire you to play along with us!  We've got a photo inspiration challenge this time and I think you'll like it. Take a look...

Isn't that adorable?!  I decided that I was going to use the image of the bear and suitcase for my card. Check it out...

First, I stamped my bear (Papertrey Ink) in Soft Suede (SU!) and then overstamped in white to lighten it.  (I should have chosen a different colour in retrospect.  It would have shown up better).  I added some "fur" texture with a white gel pen.  Then I made a mask and covered it up.  I stamped the suitcase (Inkadinkado) in black, removed the bear mask, and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  I really like how this turned out despite the bear blending in with the suitcase a bit. 

I do hope you'll stroll on over to the Ink blog and take a look at what the other DT members came up with.  All so amazing!  The GDT's project is so lovely too.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!
