Teddy for Christmas

Look who got a bear for Christmas, he's so cute with his Christmas jumper on!!  This is my very first card as a Design Team member.  I'm so proud to be part of the team at Through The Craft Room Door and hope I can inspire as many people as I've had inspiration from :). The sponsor for this challenge is Frantic Stamper.

I saw this adorable image from Make It Crafty and just had to buy him. The image is Fairy Bear and is coloured with Faber-Castell polychromos pencils - cadmium red, dark red, madder, magenta, pink madder lake, medium flesh, dark cadmium yellow, pine green, juniper green, olive green yellowish, burnt sienna, van-dyke-brown, raw umber, black.

I've also used a black biro to highlight a few areas of the image.

The ground where the fairy is sitting is coloured with Letraset ProMarkers - ivory, vanilla.

To finish the image off  I've added some shine to the wings using DecoArt Glamour Dust and cut the image out using a Floral Oval die from Spellbinders which can be found at Frantic Stamper.

Design papers used are from one of my favourite and local shops - Lili of the Valley/NitWit - Simple Joys and 'Twas the Night & Hobby Craft.  The ribbon is also from Lili of the Valley.

Bazzill Paper Flowers around the image can be bought from Frantic Stamper.

The final touch are some pearlised white, red and black self adhesive gems.

Hope you all love my first card for the challenge blog

Hello and welcome Andrea. Thankyou for fluttering by with your lovely fairy bear. I like his jumper . You have coloured so well. I thought it was a printed image at first as it is so good. Hope you will come and play again when the butterflies are back. hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).
