These holidays I made a new friend Jazmine, who has invited me to her 10th birthday this Sunday. Being as broke as I am, I decided to make her a painting, so after some questioning I discovered that she loves Care Bears, especially Share Bear (because she's purple and that's her favourite colour  Wink), so I made this:



Excuse the dull-ness of the photo's - my camera's a heap  Roll Eyes

Here are the close-ups:







I used gouache and outlined everything in black permanent marker. The Care Bear and rainbow are painted on 3mm MDF and the stars and clouds are painted onto card. I drilled holes in the MDF and strung it all together with ribbon.

That is wicked cute!!! I used to love the Care Bears!!!

When I read your post title I had to laugh because all I could picture was a gutted Care Bear spead out and hung up, like a real bearskin rug. Somebody should do that - it would be hilarious (or traumatic to children, take your pick). lol  Grin

That is awesome! It totally looks like something you'd find in a store for tons of money rather than something you did yourself - you did an amazing job. The stars are so adorable!

Share Bear is kickin rad, my favorite color too.
That would be awesome for a baby's room, especially if you could round up all the carebears and make a big one.  Cheesy
