And here's my casing of her card. I found this sweet Bee Bear by Penny Black at a garage sale this summer, and I absolutely LOVED coloring her with my Copic markers. I colored this image a few weeks ago, so I don't remember the Copic markers I used. She'll be fun to color using various coloring mediums, and I think next time I'll watercolor her with my SU reinkers and watercolor brush.
I had to flip the sketch to accommodate the size of my image and oval Nestabilities. As a result, my wave within the design doesn't look as cool as Darlene's. I used designer paper from a Memory Big Ideas mat pad. Darlene stamped her sentiment directly onto her designer paper, but I stamped my sentiment, punched it out with my oval punch, and then sponged the inside with Pretty in Pink and the outside with Certainly Celery as I didn't want it to get lost in the stripes of my choice of designer paper. The cute little chocolate flower is from Stampin' Up's button latte' collection.
This is also for a Doubledog Dare Challenge issued by my friend, Joan Ervin, to use a glam girl in your creation. I happen to think my sweet bear is glamorous in her own right! Don't you?
Have a great day, everyone!

Feature Stamper - Darlene
The stamper being featured on Splitcoaststampers today is Darlene (akronstamperdpk). Darlene has quite the flair for vintage, which, quite honestly, I've never tried. She has many beautiful designs in her gallery. I chose her serene and beautiful Thoughts of You card that she did for one of our CCEE challenges. Darlene has participated in many of our challenges, and we love having her creations with ours. Here is the card of Darlene's that I cased:
