Floppy Bear

Nothing is better than a sweet freebie!
 
Little Scraps of Heaven offered a freebie on Wednesday to anybody who would make a project and post it to their site by yesterday. I finished mine just in the knick of time last night and shared it on the LSHD fan page; but I want to share it here with all of you as well!
 
 
This little sweetie is called Floppy Bear and even though it is no longer free, it is available in the Little Scraps of Heaven store. It was super easy to piece and oh so adorable. I decided I wanted my bear to be a girl, so I gave her a bow using Totally Natural Trendy Twine. The bear was cut using Tim Holtz Core'dinations and American Craft Cardstock. The background paper is from Doodlebug Designs new fall line called Friendly Forest. I really enjoy the color palette used by this company. So bright and fun!!! I made this a Thank You card using the Jaded Blossom Simple Sayings stamp set.
 
 
The bear was inked with Color Box inks with two shades of browns. The eyes and nose were inked with Memento Tuxedo black (Memento is my favorite ink by far). I used some Stamp' UP chalks that I have had forever around the eye and then used my Micron 005 pen to draw lashes. I also chalked the cheeks with some pink. To finish it off and to make the eyes come alive, I used my white Gelly Roll pen to add some details.
 
Super easy and super cute!!!
 
Thank you for stopping by today! I'm always glad when you take a moment to drop in!
I invite you to stop by my FB page and Pinterest page as well.
 
Blessings,
