Hello?


It's day two of MFT teasers, and I'm so glad Fred Bear is making an appearance this month! Fred Bear and the Megaphone is just so cute!


I'm going to admit....Fred Bear scares me a little. That's a LOT of fur to colour! I did have a version end up in the "circular file" but I'm happy with this one. I coloured Fred with Copics then kinda "pounced" on some colourless blender that I had squirted onto a cotton ball for a bit of a mottled look.


Inside my card Fred is shadow stamped on an Open Scallop Doily and the sentiment was curved on my clear block before I stamped it.
