Birthday Bears - My Favorite Things

Hi Everybody,

This delightful family of bears are from the stamp set from My Favorite Things called Birthday Bears.

It has a matching die set and I bought both of mine from Sevenhills Crafts

The cards are featured in my YouTube video
Birthday Bears 
It doesn't have to be just for birthdays and you can arrange your bears anyway you wish on your card.

But I thought it was fun to dress them up ready for the party.

All you need is a black fine liner pen that is suitable for water colours and draw in the outline of the clothes

Then colour in the area with your paints and leave to dry. Then you can add in spots, stripes, nappies on the baby bears, glasses, bows in fact anything that you want. You just need the confidence to add those marks in the first place.

Practise on spare card before and make sure that you are happy with the look before you add them to your card

Have fun !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
