Honey Bear

Our challenge for you this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best is Spots and Stripes. What a fun challenge and I decided to do more of a "fun" image for a change. I think this guy is a real cutey!!

I made this for my daughter.. get it? Miss you.. honey?!! That ticket is also available at Digi Doodle Shop as a free download. It comes with multiple sayings and styles. 
Honey Bear was colored with my Copics and I'm sorry I don't have my lists. But I have lots of pics and links to share. First here's a few close ups:

An angle shot to show you how the honey pot and bee's are popped up. I added a little Glossy Accents to the honey and bee's eyes. Their wings have some stickles added.

Here is a close up the dot background I created with my Copics. You can see how I do that in the video here.

This flower was made following Tracey's (my DDSB teamie) tutorial you can see here.  I cut these out of the same paper as my background and just outlined the edge of each petal with a copic marker (I think B04) to match it to the blue paper. 

Glad you came by for a visit and I hope this will inspire you to pop over to the store, grab a digi (or three or four!!) and then head to the challenge and show us your stuff!
