Happy Bearthday to Me

I had a birthday this month so I decided to make this for myself. I actually started it several days ago but I was not satisfied with my poor coloring. Today I picked up the same badly colored bear and recolored it the same way. Yet another plug for my favorite watercoloring technique: Markers, Aquapainters and Watercolor Paper. I just love how you can come back to it and make it better. I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get everything in the right spot, even the Happy Bearthday which I stamped twice in the same spot to make sure it was nice and dark since I was stamping on colored cardstock.

February Colors: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist,Crumb Cake
Other stuff: Staz On Black, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Big Shot and Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder, Crystal Effects (on red balloon).
