World’s Best Dad

Hello everyone!

It’s time for a Crafter’s Companion new release! And I think it’s the best yet – the Beatrix Potter collection!!I grew up reading all about Peter Rabbit, his cousin Benjamin Bunny (and his dad also goes by the same name), Mr Jeremy Fish and Timothy Tippytoes! Who is a better dad than Benjamin Bunny!

Don’t worry – Father’s Day is on 17th of June this year and I am mighty early for a Father’s Day card. It’s only because I have my handmade card business that I have to prepare inventory for in time for June sales.

Well here is Benjamin Bunny munching away on some veggie looking all dapper in his signature blue coat.

He was colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. I was concerned of using the “wrong” shade for such a recognizable character, you know, like coloring the American flag a wrong shade of red and blue; but I quickly remembered that there is nothing to fret – there is a list of resources on my Spectrum Noir instructional DVD that lists all the colors for the Crafter’s Companion characters. Phew!

 

Here are the colors I used: GB10, EB2. EB1 for the bunny himself and TB3, TB2 and CT3 for his coat. (the instructional DVD lists TB4 instead of TB3 for his coat – I didn’t have that shade so I just layered on TB3 a little more)

 

Have fun with your Spectrum Noir markers – they are a breeze to use.
