MFT BLOG HOP AND SHOP!

Yeah.....It is release day at My Favorite Things! SOOOO many sweet images this month and I get to show off "Snow Bear" from the Fred Bear line.
First off, blog hop info...
If you have come here from Michele's Blog you are hopping along just fine...If you are a regular visitor of my blog you might want to start at the beginning of the hop which is Kim's blog.
What a sweet scene...a bear building a snowman... I had some scraps of patterned paper in my winter drawer and I only had this little piece so I couldn't tell you the manufacturer.
I also used the new SNOWFLAKE DIE-NAMICS die to cut a little snowflake from a patterned paper scrap. Yup, green snowflakes...lol!
Here is a close up of the coloring. I have so much fun with these Fred Bear images because I love to color his fur with my copics and then add the fur with my blender soaked towel.

Here is an example of feather blending on the snowman's scarf. I blended BG72 and YG93 together, just like if it was knit with varigated yarn.
I used my airbrush for the background just to soften the white.

Next on the hop is the ubber talented BARBARA! Enjoy the hop/shop!
