My English Bear

Good morning everyone,

It’s Crafter’s Companion Friday and today I have a sweet sweet English bear to share with you – specifically Meadow Cottage Bear.

She is a new release this week and was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers (bear:  GB8, GB10, EB5, flower: LV1, LV2, foot and hand pads: PP1, post it note and floral wrap: GB4, GB5, GB1, leaves: DG2, DG4, shawl: TB1, TB2) and I dabbed her fur with some kitchen towel dipped in blender solution to create a softer texture. This was not a bear for coarse flicking fur. Papers were from a very old Making Memories paper pad I had. The shaped card itself was cut with Spellbinders Label 8.

She reminds me of this old little teddy I had when I was little. I’m off to see if I can find him in the basement.
