Forever Friends Bear on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new follower :o)

For today's card I've used a Forever Friends stamp from Docrafts, dated 2008. When I first started buying my own cards as a teenager (many moons ago) I invariably bought one with a FF bear on it so when the images came out as rubber stamps I couldn't resist buying a few.

There wasn't a name on the stamp, so I'm calling him Champagne. I stamped him onto Elegance Satin 160gsm ice white paper and fussy cut him out. He is coloured with Promarkers/Flexmarkers:-
Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Putty, Ivory, Olive Green, Soft Khaki, Mustard, Blender.

After stamping him again onto a circle of ivory linen card I glued the coloured version on top and arranged with papers from my stash.

Other ingredients:
stitched circle dies from China
'Go To Words' by Visible Image
Buttermilk Tonic Nuvo Drops

Thank you to Janneke whose card I used for inspiration (click on the picture to visit her blog)
