Tear Bear

My first Tear Bear, actually I don't like it but I wanted to give making one a try, he is far too dark as this was the only thick Mulberry paper I could find that would be suitable to make one with.
It was made by drawing round shapes with a wet paintbrush onto the paper then teasing the circle away from the rest of the paper which left the hairy looking edge.
The sentiment is by Stampin Up

Your tear bear is beautiful, especially since he is a first attempt. I love how they emerge when you create them and slowly put their face together.

I know what you mean about the dark paper... but because of that he looks like a doggie, so that is ace!!
