Citrus Bear

I've been seeing lots of soft citrus ombre backgrounds in bloggy land lately so thought I would give it a go.  I ended up using Copics and my airbrush to get that perfect gradation of color.  Swoon-worthy! I used gold for the coverplate so pull in the metallic element of the challenge pic.  Love how that looks against the citrus.

I had a harder time settling on the bear.  So many cute cute cute images to choose from but this little guy was calling to me.  Adorable in his soft palette.  And do you see what I see?  A heart in the balloon?  Total happenstance but ever so cute.

You only have a couple more days to join Challenge #3 so hop to it.  Lots to love in the inspiration pic!

Since I've not used the Hexastar Cover Plate before, I'm entering Darnell's NBUS #7 Anything Goes. It's such a great incentive to use forgotten or neglected  stuff in the stash.  I'm also entering Mod Squad Pet or Animal and Seize the Birthday without optional Tags topping
