It’s time for another Friday Crafter’s Companion post. As you may have noticed, Crafter’s Companion has had weekly new stamp releases for a couple of months now. I’ve been looking forward to working with some very cute existing Crafter’s Companion stamps and this week I’m showcasing my timeless favorite – Popcorn the Bear.
I’ve colored Popcorn using Spectrum Noir Markers (GB8, EB7, TN7) – I usually play it safe by blending my furry animal and texturing it with colorless blender. Today I wanted to try just giving him “rougher” uncombed fur and just flicked the colors (without blending) in the direction of hair grown – at least what I thought the direction of hair growth on a bear should be. That unique ribbon is from May Arts and my “grass” is just trimmed using Martha Stewart fringe scissors.
This image is so versatile – you could also use it for a Mother’s Day card. That’s what I thought when I made it yesterday but I’d already send out my Mother’s Day cards so it became a Thank You Card instead.
