The little guy I'm going to share with you today looks like he has a can do attitude!
For my background, I scribbled some of my Zig Real Brush markers on watercolor paper and just used a wet brush to smooth out the color. I dried it with my heat gun and went back for a second layer until I got the blend that I liked. I watered down a little bit of black distress ink mixed with Pearl Ex and splattered it all over my background. I love splatters! Then I carefully glued some of the blue and green stars randomly. Then I cut it out with the second largest die in Fancy Frames. The black I cut out using the largest die in Fancy Frames.
The bear itself I colored with Polychromos pencils. I was able to match my background colors pretty well! The banner is from the Flag Banners die set. As I didn't have any appropriate sentiments on hand, I just hand wrote it! EEP!!! I thought it needed a little something so I rubbed the edges on my Versamark ink pad and used black embossing powder. Both the bear and the banner are popped up with foam tape. Oh, and the lovely background paper is from the Doodlebug Back to School pad!
