OK... I fell for these gorgeous little critters as soon as I saw the release post from Mama Elephant... so I ordered yesterday from Dies to Die For In the UK - received them this morning, and coloured this afternoon!! How could anyone resist this fab stamp set - and that wonderful forest die?
I did a Distress Ink background using lots of blues - splattering with water and Picket Fence Distress Ink Paint. I made an extra snow bank too before diecutting the forest - cutting it twice to give extra depth. I used my B60 Copic pen to give some colour to the snowdrifts.. hopefully making them look more natural.
I tried to give these little bears some extra fuzzy fur texture.. just by dotting rather than flat colouring - I think it worked.
