Popcorn the Bear

This sweet little guy is Popcorn the Bear, which my friend Melanie so graciously let me stamp! I used him to make a sympathy card for my sweet friend at work, who recently lost a very dear friend to a long and painful battle with cancer! :(

I colored Popcorn with my watercolors (tombows) and just used some simple papers I had- mainly Basic Grey- but I wanted him to be the focus! Popcorn is also a very large image so it becomes difficult to try to do crazy layouts with him!
I LOVED the end result of this card. I don't believe i photographed the inside of the card but it was matted with more Basic Grey and there was a matching duck stamped in the bottom left corner too! I find it quite difficult to make fur look real with my tombows as the definition is lost in blending, keep in mind I have never taken a class for Tombows or any watercolor methods, so that doesn't help either!! hehe :)
Well this was a personal project that I thought I would share because I was very happy with him!! He's soooo cute!
Thanks for visiting!!


  1. He turned out beautiful Amanda. I was happy to let you stamp him, and I'm sure your friend was very blessed by your card.
