MFT Teasers - Fred Bear Hits the Beach!

Today I'm sharing a card I made with the new Fred Bear set. He's all decked out and ready to hit the beach (or the pool). This is what I will look like in a couple of days (perhaps I'll leave the fish out though - lol).
I used the Guest Designer challenge for this month to determine my colours. See the panels in the background? Remind you of anything? I was going for the Canadian flag - hope it worked! I sewed my panels on and then decided to wrap some twine around my brads too.

I pieced Fred's hat from cork and also the sandcastle from the Pure Innocence Beach Bum set. I covered his glasses, ring and lotion with clear glaze pen and added some glitter to his fish (is that a snack for later I wonder?). I also used some blender solution and a rag on Fred to give his fur some texture.

Here's a couple of things you need to know:
  • July's release party is Wed. July 7th from 8-10pm EST in this thread in the MFT forum on Splitcoast
  • The Guest Designer contest details are posted here. This is your chance to join the design team next month and receive the release for free! In honor of Canada Day on July 1st in Canada and Independence Day on July 4th in the States, this month's challenge is a COLOR CHALLENGE. Use any neutral, white, cream, black, or kraft with the color RED and/or BLUE. You can take your project in any direction you would like using these colors.
