Today's card was created using Stampin' Up's Baby Bear stamp set. I was using a Clarity brush to create a very subtle background color. I first stamped the bear and then stamped a second. I fussy cut the second bear to use as a mask over the first. Once the mask was adhered, I started brushing the Soft Sky ink from the lower left corner and up and down and across the bottom using the largest Clarity brush. I will say that the background is just what I was hoping for~~a light color difference that faded into the white. I certainly couldn't have accomplished this using sponges or daubers without having definite sponge marks. The heart balloon and the sentiment are both from Lawn Fawn. I see that I did not put a little bow on this guy--have to take care of that! Have a great day!
