There is a challenge on the Cricut Circle Message Board to create a project using the new Circle cartridge, Charmed. And the challenge has turned into a battle between the teddy bear image and the pig image. While the pig is very cute, I had to do a teddy bear.
Since I am a native Californian, I decided to make a California bear. We have a bear on our flag — a grizzly bear. While we no longer have grizzly bears in California, I made this little brown bear greeting everyone from California.
The background is printed from one of my clipart collections I got from PC Crafter. It was a wonderful site that had lots of great clipart. Unfortunately, it ceased operating a while ago and the website is no longer available.
The bear is cut from the Charmed cartridge at 2.5″. I inked and chalked him. Then I decided to give him a t-shirt, featuring two of my favorite characters — who just happen to be a bear and a pig. It’s Pooh & Piglet! I hand cut the t-shirt and inked the edges.
Here is a close up of the graphic on the t-shirt.
This was a quick and easy card to do — and it was fun. Now to go post it before the midnight deadline hits.
