A couple of bears and some kraft card!

 I've deliberated about whether to post this card, or not.....it was my second attempt with my polychromo pencils and I wasn't sure about it....but I actually quite like it now, so here it is!

The image is a LOTV Born to Shop and I love it!  She has had some gloss added to her sunglasses, but everything else is pencil, coloured on kraft card (ok, ok, I admit it....it was the inner of some wrapping paper!!). 

The papers have been printed from My Memories Suite: Checked Ruby and Lime.  I have a copy of the software to giveaway, if you are interested, click here

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Lili's Little Fairies - My Favourite Stamp (Born to shop or Teddy Flower)
Papertake Weekly - Buttons, Bows, Bling and Blooms (bling from the stickles in corner and around image and blooms)
Crafty Catz - Use Something New (pencils and paper)

 And another bear card, this time with Teddy Flower, again by LOTV and again, coloured with pencils and gloss.  You can see a line around the image from the oil for blending, but I think it's ok.  I followed Angela Wiseman's advice to do a light colour and blend, then do a second coat of the light colour and blend, before adding the additional shades.  The butterfly and flowers have been coloured with pencils on the card, then covered in glamour dust.

  8. Hi these are just gorgeous. I found your blog when I was searching for ways to colour 'Born to Shop' and I am now following you. I love the way you have coloured the image with pencils. It is so different. The 'Teddy Flower' is my favourite LOTV stamp and I love the card you have made with that too. The Sugar and Spice paper works well. Glad I found your blog - I shall pop back!
