Fri Sketchers: Pink bear?!

This is made using the sketch over on Friday Sketchers. Had this cute little bear left to colour in from the WoJ party Animals and wanted to use this Bo Bunny paper so I thought . . why not make the bear pink! (well, it's not like you need to go for realism is it - how many bears do you see accepting wrapped presents?!!) He turned out a bit too pink at first but luckily with Copics, you can just keep on adding! so I 'dulled' him down a bit with a few E colours and am happier now (yes, it was intentional to not blend all the colours smooth as it's fur so wouldn't reflect smooth like skin) though still not to sure if it was a wise move making him pink!

Sorry this is such a late post but blogger was playing up earlier and wouldn't let me add my photo (it obviously didn't like my pink bear!) before I left for work. So hope you're enjoying what's left of the weekend!

  • Images: 'Bruno bear with present' Whiff Of Joy stamp, as is sentiment
  • Colouring: Copics for image and distress ink for edges around image
  • DP: Bo Bunny
  • Tools: Blossom nesties (for both image and the flowers - also traced around one for the edge of the card) SU ribbon slot punch & word window punch. Fiskars 'apron lace' border punch
  • others: pom pom ribbon, pink bella's baubles & couple of buttons

Maybe when a bear is embarrassed he turns pink all over. I still think he's cute and love the fabulous card you've made with him.
