TCP Tuesday 144 - Sketch Challenge

I love a good sketch...and this week's TCP Tuesday challenge is a wonderful sketch!! I used my adorable Bear Hugs set again, and this time I made him (her?) a brown bear. I colored the bear in with my E53, 55 and 57 markers with a touch of 51 and 59. My 53 is really juicy, which ended up adding some nice texture!

For the sketch, I decided to use felt for the circle piece, and I wanted to add some stitching, so I carefully zigzagged all around the curve. I only messed up a few places...pretty good for this lousy machine I've been using (the Pixie - I don't recommend it!!!) Then I also stitched down the 3 strips of paper. I stamped the sentiment on the rectangular piece and sponged around it...then added the bear on top.

Overall I think it's pretty cute, so I'll probably use it for Jackson's valentine this year. I also finished Julia's and will show you that soon!
