Bear Hugs For Pals Paper Arts 85

Believe it or not, I don't know how long I've had this bear stamp set sleeping in my drawer, and today it woke up! I had so much fun painting this little bear.
I looove to paint. For this bear, I used watercolor pencils and smoothed out the lines with the Aquapainter. If you don't have an Aquapainter, a regular small damp brush works well. Don't get the bristles too wet (just damp) when you're not working with watercolor paper. Regular cardstock is not prepared to receive a lot of water and it can break easily. On the contrary, if you use watercolor paper there is no limit on how much water you can put on it.
Bear hugs for you! Enjoy!
