Bear Hugs is a fun stamp set featuring two sizes of bears, both with arms outstretched just waiting to hold a string of fish, a banner of hearts or any other number of things. I envisioned this bear at the edge of Squaw Lake in Southern Oregon, having his fill of fish for dinner. Doesn’t he look proud of his catch?
I used my Aqua Painter to color this card using the following ink pad colors:
Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, Rose Red & Soft Sky. Framelits were used to cut out the bear and fish. Card stock colors are Soft Sky with a mat of Pale Plum and watercolor paper. I stamped the bear with VersaMark ink on Crumb Cake card stock and then heat embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder. I then watercolored him with Soft Suede ink.
