Laura Liddell: Bear Hugs


Couldn't you just give this poor little bear a hug? Those nasty bees are tormenting him. It looks as if he may have been stung?

This is one of the new stamps available now, just follow the link in the side bar. I am quite fond of telling a tale when I stamp and with these stamps you can't help but do so. The bee is also from the same plate.

I coloured the images with Derwent water-soluble pencils. I left them as crayons but turned the shadow into paint by adding water. When it came to the bees wings I came up with a cool idea, at least I thought it was nifty. I added a spot of blue and a spot of green sparkly Sakura Gelly Roll ink and then immediately spread the colour with the clear sparkly pen that they have in the range. It gave a wonderfully subtle and soft colour that was like gossamer.
