The first time I stamped this wolf, I decided that you didn't need to add much color to him -- maybe just a little grey or brown to soften the lines -- and, of course, those eyes!


I was playing around with the shaving cream technique the other day and thought it would make a wonderful background for that bear, which is almost a silhouette. I decided not to color him either!


Make sure you check out everyone's blogs to get more ideas for this definitely "masculine" set. Lois   (that's me)  Vicky   Anne   Pat G.  Karen H.  Patty P.  Mary  Dawn M.  Marilynn  Chrissy   Karen K.  Pam Debbie   Nancy  Bonnie  Harriet  Kathy  Brenda  Mark's Finest Papers
