Stamp Fairy provided "Lenny Lady Bug" for Craft Your Passion's latest Monday Challenge #167 - "Let's Play Dress-up". I printed him out 3 times, colored with Copics, fussy cut, sculpted and mounted his different body parts with foam tape. Half his background was cut away to allow him to step out of his surroundings into a field of Basic Grey flowers. I punched four holes for the twine, attached the sentiment tag, tied a bow and finished with the "Candi" top right, colored with the same Copic colors used in my image.
Below is a peek at the inside and a close-up of the bear fur:
