SENDING BEAR HUGS

With the Christmas Season over and flu season in full swing, 
I thought I would make a stash of 'feel better' cards for those in need
of a bit of cheer.

Fred Bear Gives Comfort (by MFT) is one of my new stamps and I could
hardly wait to ink it up.  The tissue box screams for a real
tissue and it makes for a very cute embellishment.



I had a lot of difficulty colouring this image with my Copics.
It's a very open image with no stamped shaded areas to guide you.
So, the second card was coloured with Distress Inks.




Here is a close-up of the tissue.
I decided to paper piece the blanket for a bit of interest, too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Both cards are adorable. I LOVE the way you added the tissue! Open images with no shading already on it are hard to color.
Happy New Year!
Hugs and smiles
