Happy Beer Day....

Hi all

Hope you are all having a good weekend - I'm still suffering with a painful mouth at the mo, might need another trip to the dentist sooner than I wanted!

Anyway on to the important stuff and here is the card I've made for my Dad's birthday which is next weekend. I've used a different bear this time from Di's Digi Downloads, still trying to practice my fur colouring!

How do you think the fur colouring is coming along?? Still waiting for my other colours to arrive - they are taking forever!

I'm sure Dad will like this, now to try and think of what present to get him!

Catch up with you all again soon!

  5. Fur is so hard, isn't it? You don't want to blend too much or it doesn't look like fur. Leave too much white showing and it appears streaky. You seem to be getting the hang of it and your card is adorable! Thanks for joining the challenge at Creative Inspirations Paint. Julie, CIP DT member

  6. Another adorable card Lisa. I think if you keep practicing at the fur it will be second nature. Just like anything in life, practice, practice practice. :)
