Christmas Teddies

Hello and welcome to the blog today. Edna here with my card for this week 
and I've chosen this gorgeous group of teddies from Wild Rose Studio to play with!

Stamp - Wild Rose Studio - Christmas Teddies
Papers - Teresa Collins - Christmas Cottage
Dies - Memory Box - Frostyville wreathFrostyville border
Ribbon - red satin
Pearls - 5mm snow white
Pearl brads - snow white
Gems - clear
Sentiment - Molly Bloom - Happy Christmas
Art Institute crystal glitter

The image is coloured with Promarkers (PM) and Copics (C)
Bears - Putty (C), Pastel beige, satin (PMs)
Mummy bears hat and scarf - Sand, Chamois, Light Walnut (Cs)
Dad's scarf - Burnt Sienna, Walnut, Umber (PMs)
Baby bears hat and scarf - Burgundy, Berry Red, Poppy Red (PMs)

The texture on the teddy bears is achieved by dotting some drops of blending solution onto a piece of cheesecloth (you could use gauze) and dabbing it over the sections you want to look 'furry'. I usually do this after colouring in teddies or dogs etc and before I add the other colours. Allow the blending solution to dry thoroughly before you continue colouring. :)

I hope you enjoy today's card as much as I enjoyed making it.
