#40 Gone Gingham 2

This week at Card Crafter's Circle, we've gone GINGHAM!  We want to see creations with gingham checks .... gingham is such a simple pattern, but one of my favourites ... and this is my second creation for the same challenge!

Our sponsor this week is Stamp Art Design by Kathryne ... one of my favourites.... and I used Little Bear Summer Bonnet Fun set .... since I couldn't which of the hats I was going to dress Miss Little Bear in... so I created two cards.  One here and one in the next post!

Miss Bear here is wearing layers of gingham, printed separately and paper pieced.  You'll see a white cheeky petticoat poking at the hemline... this was left neat and uncoloured, so the white is really white!  Her brimmed hat is adorned with another paper pieced ribbon band, with green button detail. Finally the hearts and pockets are glitter penned.

I printed multiple images on both green and yellow gingham paper to paper piece it all together.... the bear is printed on white card, and waterbrushed with Sienna ProMarker (a little darker in this card, because she's wearing a darker gingham).  She is fixed to simple layers of gingham and gold metallic card, pinned with emerald pearls.  Since I know a little girl who will adore this sweetie bear, I've made this one with a birthday sentiment (although she'll probably want the other gingham bear card too!

I'm entering this creation into these challenges....
