Bear With Heart - Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week

This is my second post for today.  For WoodwareUSA challenge, please scroll down or click here.

I can't believe how fast time is going!  It is Monday already and the last day of January! Wow!  And at Repeat Impressions Mondays mean a change to a new featured stamp for the week.  This week the SOTW is Bear with Heart (118-I).  This image is being offered at a 50% discount to all RI blog readers, so go to the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built, to receive the information and link to this image.  While you are at the blog, check out what the other Rock Stars created using Bear with Heart!
 I thought he would look cute on a valentine since he was carrying a heart - and when I thought about a valentine I remembered how we used to make valentines with paper doilies.  So I decided to use my new MFT Die-namics Doily die.  I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored him in with watercolor pencils and an aquabrush.  I colored the heart with Copics and then painted on some red Stickles.  I don't think you can see it very well but I embossed the red mat with the Hearts Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I punched the bottom of the card with a Martha Stewart border punch and embellished with red rhinestones.
Thanks for coming by!
