Bear & buddy for Halloween

Bear ware Halloween-001-jebersole


I masked off a hillside on watercolor paper  (free-hand cut the mask) and then blended some Distress Oxide Inks to create a night sky.  Splattered with water and heat set repeatedly until satisfied. :)  I had a scrap of watercolor paper I’d done the same thing with in yellow and orange inks, sitting in my scrapbin, so I punched a circle out of it for a moon. This is why we save ridiculous things like scraps, right?! *insert rolling eyeballs*

All the images were stamped and colored with Copic markers prior to die cutting. I’m always trying to color Bear and have yet to find a color of brown I really like on him–I seem to really like him just all white. Not sure why.  This worked out OK, but I think next time, I’m just gonna leave him white.  *chuckle*

Kitty cracks me.  She looks very… pragmatic about all this Halloween business. LOL!

BTW, I find I’ve been using Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts PICO Clear Embellisher (or their On Point Glue; the bonus of using PICO, however, is that it can also be used as a high gloss epoxy finish) for my sequins of late; I don’t seem to have any nozzle clogging issues!  I know it doesn’t have a matte finish, but at this point, I don’t care–it glues those puppies down and it doesn’t clog.    Besides, if I get sloppy, I just use a little scrap card stock corner as a squeegee to remove any excess.


Happy Hump Day! :)

Concertina tag-01-B-jebersole

Ombré shaker tag! YAAASSSS!!! :)  I brushed NUVO Mousse (Pink Flame / Mother of Pearl) across a tag I die cut from kraft card stock–I don’t typically go for pink at the holidays, but it looked so festive and fun!  Fun having the word “holiday” peeking out from behind, all label-like.  That background paper? Yes, from the Modern Graphics Paper Pack.  It goes with EVERYTHING!!! *giddy*

I can’t resist a play on words.  I try. But, resistance is usually futile, as in this case… *chuckle*

Bear ware 2-0111-je

Bear’s got his cozy scarf wrapped around and a sweet little potted Christmas tree in his arms.  I think he’s ready for a beary, merry Christmas himself, LOL!

Sorry for the “fuzziness” of this picture–unfortunately, I didn’t have good daylight when I had to shoot, and no amount of editing seems to be improving it. Argh.

I masked off a hillside and then used a sponge dauber and some soft sea glass pigment ink to swipe up an artic sky–I left it a little streaky because it reminded me of the Northern Lights!  Over stamped the snowflakes with some white pigment ink so they show up subtly against that soft blue sky…
