Shy Bear Carousel
Sometimes you just want to say, "Stop the world. I want to get off!" Things happen so quickly, people are short and ugly with you for things you have no control over and sometimes you just don't feel good. Shy Bear Carousel makes me think it's possible to get off of that merry-go-round that we call life, take that so needed breath to renew ourselves and then get back in the saddle again. And besides, he just makes me smile! I haven't seen one of these Shy Bears that Susana's Custom Art and Card Design carries that I don't just love!
He was a first for me because I colored him with distressed inks and I'd never used them before. I'm really pleased with how he came out. I think it's a bit much around the sky, but other than that, I'm happy with the little guy! I loved all the embellishments I could add to him. Susana just started selling the Bella Baubles and I used Oyster on the corners , mermaid and champagne stickles to his blanket and harness and used my Atyou gold spica glitter pen on his hoofs. Couldn't let him go without coloring him with coffee shimmers and using pink poinsettia shimmerz on his and the horse's ear and Sunflower on the pole. The floral background paper is from Dovecraft's Retro stack and you can only get this paper from Susana here in the states.
Here's a picture of the inside of the card. I love the finishing look it gives the cards.
I hope if there's ever a need, we all remember to get off that carousel and rest for a moment.
