Wellington Bear

 
Welcome to my new followers and I hope you enjoy your visit.  Today's card is using a stamp set I've had for a long time and was on my list of 'really want to use'.  It is Docraft's Wellington clear stamp set
#WEL 907100 and I found this little gem on Ebay.  It is quite a large set with four bigger images and several sentiments, including the one I used.


For the bear, I used Copic W5, W3 and W0 and then added W7 for the outer loose hairs.  Once it was coloured, I took a cloth dipped into blender solution and dabbed down on the image to give the fur a little texture.  The footpads are E09, E07, E04 and E02; the nose is E47, E43 and E41.  I had some tiny little black flat back pearls so I added them for eyes and dotted white highlights.  The paper is from the 7 Gypsies Postal collection and I love that paper pad (actually, there's never been a 7 Gypsies collection I haven't liked)!  The buttons are one of Prima's wood button sets.

Marilyn, this is simply outstanding. The way you did the fur on the bear seems to give it that special "furry" look! So pretty and love the backing paper you used too.
