Bad bear !

Hello everyone,

I have made a new project for AALL & Create. As some of you might know, my hubby and I went to London and had a spontaneous meet with Abs ! It was great fun, we had a laugh... and he brought me some new stamps ! Thanks Abs ! I have used the bear set by Louise Nelson this time and combined it with a new stencil by Abs.

I was looking through my stash for something and then came across this mousetrap. I thought it would make a great little project for one of the Bad Bears ! So that is what I did. 
And here is how:

I removed all the metal bits and painted the wood with Acrylic Paints. 

 I then added the stencilling using the new 'Weathered tiles' stencil by Autour de Mwa and Archival Ink. I also inked up the edges and stamped the word Bad from the 'Bad Bears' stamp in the set. 

I stamped one of the bears and coloured him with my favourite medium: Copic Markers.

After putting all the metal back I adhered the bear with dimensional tape to the trap, added the saying (I took of the 's' of the words bears) and put a bow on the top hook. 

And here is the finished project again. 

I have used :
Stamp set #157 - Bad Bears by Louise Nelson
Stencil #59 - Weathered Tiles by Autour de Maw
