Teddy Bea in the Spotlight ...

This is my entry for the new challenge over at Teddy Bo; hence the title!
Still playing with the bears and making it large with the image again pretty much filling the whole card.
Loving this image since its release a couple of weeks ago; this Teddy Bea is called "Beach Bea" and I have initially coloured her in with Prismacolor and then dotted over the top with Promarkers to give this effect, rather effective me thinks?  
I confess this technique came about more by accident as I wasn't happy with the colouring being such a large image and all, so I had a go with the Promarkers and hey presto!  I made a mask for Teddy Bea and dusted Tim Holtz 'Tumbled Glass' distress ink around her for the background and then again dotted with the Promakers to finish. A little bit of stitching (for a change) and some glossy accents for her nose and the puddle beneath her.
Thanks for popping, lots of new Teddy Bo images for sale today so please pop over for your weekly fix.  I received some images for my feature last week (very gratefully received Gayle, thank you) so I am off to have a play.
Thanks to all my followers regular and new, take care, happy crafting
