The Three (er, Four) Bears
Topic: Coloring

I grabbed another set of those free digital images to color up for cards. These are again colored with alcohol markers.

I used the same two reds for the balloons on all of them and then pulled some color off with the colorless blender to create 'shine' to make them look 3-dimensional.

I colored each of the bears with a different set of two browns and gave each a different outfit color using two coordinating markers. Each bear was trimmed into a rectangle and the corners rounded. Then I chose a background to go with the bear colors and accents to pick up on the other parts of the stamp.

First bear actually got a green background and bordering to go with the clothing. The hearts paper repeats the heart balloons and I added some tiny green rhinestones down the left edge of hearts as an accent.


Bear two is dressed in purple so the bordering paper is also. I used red accent paper to echo the balloons and a strip of self-stick ribbon to pull some of the pink from the outfit. 5 rhinestones in pink are the accent.


I didn't want to go too bold with the fuschia of the outfit so I used the honey color of the bear, red hearts like the balloons ad then added a soft green accent strip. The light pink bordering gives nod to the outfit colors without competing for attention.


Lots of red hearts to key off the balloons on this one. I used the bear color for the accent strip and a strip of blue self-stick ribbon to echo the stripe in the outfit. Three blue rhinestones finish it off.


These cards will go to Operation Write Home to be used as 'Love', Valentines' or 'Kids' cards.
