A Little Popcorn Madness...with ProMakers

Well, I did say I'd try and do another bear card this week just to remind you about the BEAR Challenge going on over on the Quirky forum... You still have a week!! There' a prize, and if any of my followers have a go, I'll send them a little prize too!! (don't all rush at once...please!)
I've had this Popcorn stamp set for ages and this is the first time I've used it, mainly because, you have to cut them out, very scary, being careful not to cut them too close (or cut off Popcorns ears!) and then not to lose all the tiny little pieces. Once cut out, you have to find some way of making them stick to your acrylic block. Of course me being me, that took a few weeks, (months) Dah!
I bought me some 'Kling-on' (nothing to do with Star Trek) and feeling very brave (even with my stupid finger in a plastic splint now) I cut out all the little bits and fixed them onto the 'Kling-on' (Luckily he didn't mind and if you clink the link you'll find a video telling you how to do it... wish I'd found that first!) Then I realised I didn't have an acrylic block big enough for poor Popcorn, so, I used a CD case instead, then found that all the little pieces fitted just right inside the same case. (sometimes I think, I'm not me, but someone else who has been swapped by aliens!)
I've used the sketch from Midnight Madness, so of course I've entered this card into their Challenge #38, which has two sketches this week... almost the same but different, and...mine's a bit different too. There's still time to have a go! This card has gone off to a forum buddy. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a good one!
I've used papers from the Craft CD-Rom free with The Do-Crafts Creativity Magazine. I've also coloured Popcorn with Promakers using Pastel Green, Blossom, Pastel Blue, Vanilla, Bright Orange and Canary, so have entered Passion For ProMakers challenge.
And (thank you Chris aka Twinkles Glow for letting me know!) I've also entered this card into the Flutter By Wednesday's Challenge too. Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #97 is Blooming Gorgeous. I hope I have enough flowers!
The font  I've used is called Honey Script. (Google the name)
I stamped Popcorn and then cut him out using my Nestabilities scalloped circles, then stamped Popcorn again, cut him out and after colouring, fixed it over the circle, because obviously Popcorn was bigger than the circle and his leg had been cut off! (don't worry, he's ok!) I then coloured the circle using the pastel blue.
Watch out for my next bear post because there'll be a link where you can download him and matching papers for free!!  Owing to SPAM< This post is now closed to all comments

Passion For ProMakers -to use Pastel Green and Blossom.
