MFT Teaser!

It is a wonderful time of the month where I get to show you peeks of the My Favorite Things release that is happening February 1st! I am at CHA right now and drooling over all the paper goodness that is coming our way for 2011....more on that when I get back!
Today I am showing you the newest Fred Bear....this is "Fred Bear Out West". There are a lot of fun pieces to this set including the cactus plant, Fred and some fun sentiments.
Here is a close shot of my coloring with my copic markers. I used a loose scribble style of coloring him so that he has some texture to his fur. I also masked Fred Bear before stamping the cactus plants. After I was all done coloring I used my airbrush for the background.

My light source is coming from the top left so I went a bit deeper on the airbrush colors on the right side.

Here are the details about the upcoming release on February 1st at 10 PM EST:

  • The MFT release is on February 1st at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available on January 4th at 10 PM EST.
