Simple Copic Coloring - Birthday Bears

For World Card Making day, I had the opportunity to create several cards.   I saw this card on My Favorite Things blog and used it for some inspiration.   In this instance, less coloring of the images is better.  I used one color and really just scribbled the color on.  No shading!    The bears were super easy as I just really outlined the images and put some color on for the cheeks.  For the background, I sponged Simon Says Stamp dye ink in Hot Mama and Teeny Bikini on smooth white card stock and then spritzed with the Mister Huey spray and set aside to dry.     I layered the ink piece with the oval frame and layered some plaid paper underneath to add some more color and interest to the card.    I loved the sketch look of the coloring and it was super quick and simple.    I am seeing more and more sketchy coloring on cards!   I love the look.     I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog Anything Goes and World Card Making post.
