Bear Hug

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to our weekly challenge over at Through the Craftroom Door Magazine.

This week we are being sponsored by QKR Stampede and this cutie is one of theirs.

I thought this was so cute with the little "kiss" on his face. I have colored with my Copic markers. I have used some of my favorite Copic red combos. My all time favorite is the one I used on his shirt. R 37,46,59 and E 18. I love the richness it gives.

The papers are from K and Company. I thought they were perfect for this. The LOVE and HUG embellishments are from The Dollar Tree. They have some great things for cardmaking even if not marketed for such. The little glitter heart is from Making Memories. 

I have added stickles to parts of his vest and bow. The heart box of candy has glossy accents on it.
I created the texture of fur on the bear using a piece of wash cloth and rubbing alcohol applied lightly to remove a bit of the color thus creating the texture. 

If you haven't checked out the latest issue of Through the Craftroom Door Magazine. Check out my Sneak Peek of the Jan/Feb issue there is lots of good stuff there. Click Here to view.

P.S. Are you on Pintrest? If so follow our new board that we will post creations there. We are still getting it set up but hope you will take a look and follow us. 

I am entering this into the following challenges.
