Hi girls (and fellow crafters)
Here's my offering for today. I am entering this card into the Passion for Promarkers challenge 'Coffee and Cream' colour combo. I am also entering him into the Teddy Bear Stampers challenge, which is also a colour combo using 'Brown, White and Pink. Well I have used the Blush colour on her dress and the heart so that is a very pale pink... hopefully it'll be acceptable???
I have used a new digi image (Teddy Bea 008) from Fairy Doodlers. Isn't she cute? I have seen a few of these bears around (during my blog surfing sessions) and loved them so much that I had to have one (okay...you got me... I got several... well I do get paid on the last Friday of the month WAHAYYYYY and that's next week!). Anyway, here's what I did:
I printed the bear and coloured her with the following promarkers ONLY: Senna, Umber, Cocoa, Cinammon, Blush and Ivory. The grey background was created using a black pencil and Sansodor. Well, I haven't used it for a while and I thought it was about time I did!
Then I scrolled around the edge of the white with my Cinnamon Promarker and added faux stitches using a 'normal' brown felt-tip (that was painful, how did I ever cope with 'normal' felts they seem to drag SOOOOOOOOO much and scratchy, don't even get me started on that!). Sorry, I am waffling again. Next I mounted some DP onto the white base card using some cream and gold embossed paper that I got from Craftwork Cards and added 5 Candi in coffee and cream colours (well I DO like my coffee the colour of GNATS ****, I'm a latte with a lotta latte kinda gal) and then added the sentiment that was also from the same collection at Craftwork Cards.
In fact, FYI, the paper, the candi, the sentiments and other things all came in a bumper pack from Craftwork Cards so pop over and check it out as they have some amazing offers on their bumper packs and it's very reasonably priced for all the stuff you get with it.
Hope you like the card? It's cold and wet here in Watford today, so doubt I'll be doing much else other than card marking, so prepare to see more of me. I'm sure that'll upset Steve enormously but hey, a girl's gotta do...what a girl's gotta do (ain't she?)
This card won The Teddy Bear Stampers blog challenge, AND got TOP FIVE at Passion for Promarkers and (because the original winner didn't come forward to claim her prize) it also WON! and I received a £10.00 voucher for Joanna Sheen. WAHHOOOOOOO!
Thanks for stopping by,
