MFT February Guest Designer Challenge

I got a wonderful package of stamps from Megan Locke for winning a Blog Candy give away she had last month. Thanks Megan :)  The package was amazing and in the package was this adorable little set called Fred Bear Out West...too cute, I fell in Love.  When I checked out what Challenges I might want to enter I saw a MFT Guest Designer Challenge so decided, why not give it a try?!?  Here is my entry: 

The images were stamped with London Fog Momento ink so you don't get such a dark outline and when you color with copic markers the outline just kind of disappears and looks more three dimensional...That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  The cactus was stampted twice and the second was cut out and mounted on foam mounting tape for a pop up affect. 
The fur affect was attained by pouncing the blender pen on the bear and then white gel pen added on top.

I love the sentiment and attached it with a red checked bow and a pair of cowboy boots which was a button from my stash.  I think this just hollers Love!!! A white doile a couple of white punch hearts and this Fred's Spurs are just janglin to tell his honey how much he loves her.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the darling Fred Bear stamps available at My Favorite Things
