Just Cute Bears #9 - Jane's Sketch #2

Sunday, 21 March 2010
Happy Sunday everyone! It's 9am so that means it's time for another Just Cute Bears Challenge!

Thank you to everyone who entered last week, I really enjoyed seeing every one's All White cards. I know some people found it a challenge but I hope you'll agree that they do look so good. Don't forget to check out last weeks lucky winner.

This week we have been lucky enough for the fabulous Jane to provide us with another of her wonderful sketches. Knowing my fear of them, I was quite happy with the look of this one and didn't panic too much!

It gave me the perfect opportunity to use one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps, Teddy with Bouquet. Isn't he adorable?! I wasn't too happy with my colouring though, I feel he's too dark and the shading is all wrong but I didn't have time to do it again I'm afraid. I used some lovely pale yellow Core'dinantions CS as the base. The white CS has been embossed with the infamous Swiss Dots folder before being punched with my MS Doily Lace punch. Due to the slight gap, I embossed some lines using my scor-pal. The image was coloured with copics before being cut out with rectangle nestabilities and backed onto a scalloped rectangle base. The ribbon across the top is quite difficult to spot but it's SU!. The colour matched perfectly with the CS. The flowers are Prima and the oval sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I think I over enhanced the photo as the CS looks quite bring, but I can assure you, in real-life, it is lovely and pale! It was overcast when I took the photo, so I tried to brighten it up a bit, but think I went too far....oops!
A close-up of the lil fella.....isn't he just adorable! I decided to make this a Get Well card as I thought the colours were soothing and it makes a change from birthday cards.
I hope you'll join us again this week. We are, as always, sponsored by the fab Cuddly Buddly. Please check out the blog for this weeks prize and also to see the cards by my amazing DT buddies.
Thank you for stopping by and the comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated. I'm now off to make a fruit tea loaf and maybe some muffins! Hope you all have a lovely day.

    Nothing wrong with your colouring my lovely! I find it hard to know when to stop when enhancing pics too - they sometimes end up looking a little over loved! ~♥~
