Doodle Palace Sneak Peak - Muddy Buddy

This week my sneak peak from The Doodle Palace is a cute image called Muddy Buddy.  The new images will be released on Wednesday.  Rather than splashing in the mud, I decided that the bear would look just as great  splashing in paint..... here is what I came up with!

Ingredients used: Yellow, Red, Metallic Blue CS, Mark-It markers, Sakura Glaze Pens (red, yellow, blue, dark green), Vintage Glazed button.

After colouring the image, I recoloured the paint splashes with Sakura Glaze pens - the are raised, and actually look wet, and feel like dried paint....not accurately represented in the photo.  Neither is the button.... less than adequate lighting didn't help, and the flash was too bright, so hopefully this little pic shows the colours of the button a little better....
I kept this one quite plain.... I couldn't stray from the idea of the bear in paint, and just couldn't seem to find the right embellishments .... other than that vintage button.  I really love the button, as it reminds me of an artist's paint palette, and also a bear paw... I thought it fitted nicely with the theme .... either that, or I have an over-active imagination!

Thanks for looking!
hugs and blessings,
