My English Bear & Giveaway Friday

Good morning everyone!  It's Friday with Steph and today I have a sweet, sweet English bear to share with you - specifically Meadow Cottage Bear.


She was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers ( GB8, GB10, EB5, LV1, LV2, PP1, GB4, GB5, GB1, DG2, DG4, 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 small. I'm off to see if I can find him in the basement.
