Sketchy Fred in Flight

I have this problem - I have more stamps than time! It's pretty serious, but a good problem to have!
Fred Bear is a new character for MFT that was introduced last month and I hadn't had time to ink him up before now. I used some more Basic Grey Origins paper and a layout from Taylor's sketch challenge.
I distressed the edges of each square and stamped the sentiment directly onto the patterned paper. There's a bit of hemp thread tied around the sentiment square as well. From the moment I saw this stamp I knew that the fuzzy parts of his jacket were screaming for liquid applique. I also used an old washcloth with some blender solution dabbed on Fred himself for the fur texture and his goggles and nose are covered with clear glaze pen.
Well friends - have a great Friday! We have a super busy weekend coming up so I'm off to get ready for it! Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Rich Cocoa, copics
Paper: MFT Perfect Panel, Kraft, Basic Grey Origins, GP white
Accessories: Square punch, hemp thread, liquid applique, edge distressor, clear glaze pen, blender solution
