A Boozy Bear for Xmas Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! do not disturb............

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today team Marianne are showcasing their Design Team Inspiration for the new challenge at 


and the host this week is Denise who chose the theme of

Teddy Bears Christmas
(to use a teddy bear on your Christmas Creation)

As most of you know I just have to create at least one Christmas card each week, and last week created not one but two. one for my other Design Team.  This week I am back to my norm so here is this weeks creation, a typical male image. 
The base layer and contrast colour is a deep read pearlescent paper and the designer papers are Dovecraft Noel Glitter Stack, available here from the Secret Crafter.  The ribbon is from the Hobby House late last year and the image is from Di's Digi Downloads

The image is coloured in copics, I recently got my new range from Grimsby Crafts and oh boy they are a fabulous new addition.  I have some lush new deep reds and this just makes the shading even easier.  I have used my new toner and neutral greys on the furry hat, blending down with my cool grey to soften the edges.  I have also used a white gel pen for the highlights and a clear glitter sakuro pen for the baubles.

I would like to welcome my new followers and also thank those of my lovely visitors for their wonderful comments, I love them all.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Cooking It Up with Katie - Sparkle, Shine and Shimmer
For Fun Challenges - Christmas Is Here
Incy Wincy - Sparkle and Shine

Hugs

Hi Kate love your card your colouring is just brilliant those shades of red are beautiful. I hate colouring in with red copic if you make a mistake and colour over the stamped edge it is so hard to remove the red I usually end up covering it up with my white gel pen. Love Linda
