Say Hello to Baby Bear by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with Baby Bear from the Baby Bear and Friends stamp set designed by Magda Polakow for That's Crafty!......don't you just want to hug him?!

What I Did:

I used the smallest That's Crafty! MDF Round for this (see I told you I was now addicted to creating with them) and painted it with a deep green from the That's Crafty! Multi Surface Paints selection. I love how opaque these paints are, truly awesome.

Did you know that Magda has also designed some stencils for That's Crafty! too which match the stamp sets? Well, I used one of them here for the hearts you can see on the background. I then doodled on the background and added a hill for Baby Bear all using Posca pens.

I stamped the flowers from the stamp set directly onto the background and once again coloured them in using Posca pens.

Baby Bear was stamped using black Archival ink on a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and coloured in with a mixture of diluted Mermaid Markers, then fussy cut out and adhered to the background making sure he was placed on top of the hill.

The sentiment, which is from one of Lynne's Affirmations, was stamped onto a scrap of Gelli print paper and then adhered to the background.

I added a piece of twine in the pre drilled holes ready for hanging

Isn't Baby Bear such a sweet little dreamer :)
