New Challenge #105 at Glitter N Sparkle

Yes it's Sunday again,
and this week has been interesting.
For some strange and bizarre reason 
I had a battle with a freshly boiled kettle
and of course I lost lol.
So now I am nursing a badly burnt arm,
typical for me.

Here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at

Things Beginning With 'B'
(Bear, Blue, Black, Brown, Brads, Buttons)

My project for this week is:-

Bear Guitar Digi Stamp 
from Sentimental Susan
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I made a 16cm Square Card from
White Card
Then I used Cyan Blue Paper
and cut out a 15.8cm Square,
followed by a 15cm Square from
Black Paper
I cut a 13cm Square out of 
Kraft Paper
and rounded off 2 opposite corners.

Next I printed off the Image on
White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

  Bear -  Pastel Beige (Claws)
                                             Satin (Ears + Chest)
Sandstone (Nose)
Cool Grey 1
Cool Grey 3
Cool Grey 4
Cool Grey 5
Guitar - Satin
Burnt Sienna

Then I used my Metallic Silver Gel Pen
for the Pickguard,
and the Metallic Gold Gel Pen
for the Guitar Strings.
I cut the Image to a 10cm Square.

Next I stamped a Musical Score Clear Stamp
( came free from a magazine)
with Black Tuxedo Ink
on Brown Paper
and cut a 3 x 3.5cm Rectangle which
I then cut diagonally in half,
for the Corners.
I wrapped a 10mm Black Organza Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
around the top 3 Layers of the card.

For my Sentiment text I used
a Silver and Blue,
'Happy Birthday' Brad

To finish my Card off I added

6 Blue Small Buttons
3 to each corner.
