Birthday Bear with gifts card (Di's Digis image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is my favourite card of the day to post, I actually made the background for a Saturated Canary image but when I put my sweet bear against it I liked them together better, sometimes that happens doesn't it? The gorgeous image is from Di's Digis. I used a star stencil and white smooth texture paste, waited for it to dry then sponged some oxide inks over it. Some crafters manage to get the stars to stay white, I tried baby wiping them but they remained yellow and I didn't mind it but I'd love to know if you know a handy tip for my issue?

  9. Sweet card and that background looks fantastic! I don't have any solution for you though on keeping the stars white, other than using embossing powder instead of texture paste.

    Thank you so much for joining in the Polkadoodles Anything Goes Challenge this time. Hope to see you again.

  28. Love the happy colors you used in this card. We are grateful that you joined our Challenge here at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the inspiration that comes from God's Word in Romans 1:17 which says, "For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Have a blessed week.
