My Bear


My turn to host the challenge today at Crafty Little Fairies and our challenge theme is Furry Friends. I absolutely love this sweet stamp and I love colouring it, which I did with my favourite pens, Copics. I sometimes struggle to use very light colours as they take a lot of blending to get them right but I am really pleased with my colouring on this one. I even managed to make it look like they are sitting on a carpet. I kept it very simple with just a couple of Marianne die cut corners and some doodling. Our prize is a chance to join us a guest designer in June.
