Maui Stamper Bear Hugs Occasions 2016 Remarkable Blog Tour

 

I love these bears.  They’re round and they have whimsical faces and then there are those honkin’ claws.  Stampin’ Up! keeps it honest there.

The Bear Hugs stamp set has a matching set of framelits, but I didn’t have them available when I created these cards and chose to trim them out with my snips.  This guy is inked in Soft Suede, and then I used a damp Aquapainter to blur the color and add Blushing Bride highlights to his nose and ears.  The fish are sparkled with clear Wink of Stella, and they’re hanging from a linen thread rope.

I brought the whole Bear Family together for the second card – same color scheme, same Woodlands TIEF but a different scene altogether.  (Note that the Woodlands TIEF will be available in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog but is not currently available to order.)

I used the same technique for the ink on the trees, but I used a much lighter hand on the first card.  The daubers allow you a lot of flexibility that way, and these two cards really illustrate the difference.
