Little Ballet Bea

Good Morning,
Happy Friday to you all!!  Today I want to share a card I have made using an adorable Teddy Bea image that I won recently.

Quite different from my last card - lots of detail going on in this one!!  I'm not really a hearts and flowers type of girl and really do struggle when a card calls for flowers as this one really did.  So, needless to say, this card took me ages to make.  The gorgeous image - Teddy Bea 214 - was such fun to colour and really took no time at all, it was the rest of the card that caused the problems. I tried so many different layouts that I had to walk away from it and come back the next day :0)  Got there in the end though!!

Teddy Bea's close-up shot!! 

Most of the cards I have seen using her have coloured her in pink so I thought I would go for something completely different and as the papers I have used are some of my all time faves, coloured her to match.  I have added some Glamour Dust to her skirt but it is not really showing up in the pictures.

Medium - Promarkers, Derwent Pencils and Weathered Wood DI
Papers - Prima Jack & Jill Collection "Ode To Joy"
Flowers - Prima Sprites 3
Flower centres - Memory Box Cherry Blossom
Butterfly - Martha Stewart Punch
Card - Martha Stewart Around The Page Punch
Flourishes - Memory Box Macarena Corner
Bow - Seam Binding coloured with Promarker to match
Pearls, Brads and Lace - stash

So that's my little offering for today. I hope you like it :0)

So beautiful Denise and such a gorgeous image! Love your colouring and design, the punched border is really pretty too. Same as you I'll sometimes leave something for a while before finishing, if it's not coming together, seems to do the trick. Hope you're well. Chris x
