Who can resist this bear??

I know I couldn't. His little face and body language just cracked me up the minute I saw it in the catalog. I have to admit that while I love to watercolor, I tend to stick with sets that are more realistic when it comes to watercoloring sets. But, after seeing this bear and this set in use at convention I put it on my wish list. Then when it was on the Never Before Seen sale, it seemed like a good time to buy it. I made a pact with myself that anything I bought this year, I had to use it within two weeks of taking delivery so today I sat down to use this set entitled, Under the Stars. What's funny is the other main reason I wanted this set (besides the bear) was for the "skeeter" image. However the skeeter did make the cut for this card!
All products from Stampin' Up!
Stamp Sets: Under the Stars, A Little Birthday Cheer (greeting)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Watercolor paper, Holiday Treasures DSP (yes, the Christmas paper but the stripe just seemed to "go" with my image)
Ink: Basic Brown, Old Olive
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter, Round Tab Punch, Scallop Border punch
I had a lot of fun making this card and another one which I'll post in the next day or so. I found the bear very fun to color. I didn't use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stack the S'mores I just went nose to table and it worked pretty well. I just smile every time I see this bear! I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it!

I am dying for this set. I took it off my list because I really needed to restock my paper. So I must wait until next month. Love the s'mores!!! Your coloring is great!!
