More Bears !

EMBOSSED BABY BEAR
This is clearly my favourite stamp set at the moment and I have been trying out lots of different colour combinations and techniques.
Here are the finished cards and underneath I have done a step by step photo guide - which is a first for me.
The bear is stamped in smoky slate and dapper denim, sponged in marina mist. 
Bear is stamped in soft suede and early espresso and sponged with peekaboo peach.

Here are my supplies all laid out

First I stamped image no 2 of the stamp set on whisper white in pink pirouette. Remember to use your piercing mat or other foam pad underneath any photopolymer stamp sets so you get a good image.

Then I stamped image no 3 of the set with melon mambo. It does take a bit of practice to line the stamps up so practice a few times first on scrap paper. I find it best to make sure the bear's bottom and the gap between arms and body are lined up.

Then finally use image no 1 and versamark to stamp over the top. Emboss with clear embossing powder and then sponge over the top using flirty flamingo.
