You Spin Me

Pin It

Yay! MFT teaser time of the month is here again! This is a week packed with eye candy all leading up to the release June 5th! This months' release details are at the bottom of the post.

A little "Fred Bear and the Pinwheel" for you today. I stamped Fred Bear on X-press it blending card and then colored him up with my copic markers using E31,33,25,17 and 93. I colored him very "loosely" as to show texture. The grass was colored with YG01,03,61,63 and 67. I only added the YG63 and 67 to the more shadowed parts of the grass. Adding a little bit of blue around the outside of Fred with BG0000, BG10 (half strength) and BG10.

Check out the inside! Using the same idea as yesterday's post, creating a frame with my portion of patterned paper left from cutting out my square STAX. Why not use the scraps?

I always like it when you girls share the numbers of copics that you use. It helps me choose colors too. (Especially if I have the same papers) Cute little card to share with a friend! ksh
