Thought I would colour a Teddy Bo image the other night and this is the end result, this little cutie it called 'On his tod' Another card with the image being the largest part of the card which is a style I really like (can't you tell)!
It doesn't really show well on the picture but the right hand side of Ted has been raised using foam pads in different depths right across to the left foot being just glued flat.
Some ribbon for his bow tie, a few gems, glossy accents for his nose, TH tumbled glass distress ink for the background. Computer generated sentiment and little hand stitching.
I have been asked which Prismacolors I use to color these gorgeous little bears, so here goes;
I start with a base of Ginger Root followed by Light Umber, Burnt Ochre and then Dark Brown.
Once these colours have been applied I go lightly over the image with the Ginger Root again but without using the blending solution. In the darkest areas I use a little black.
This is just my choice of colours but I found it works for me. Just a matter of playing around to see what suits your technique/style best.
I am going to enter this in the Teddy Bo Challenge which is this time round is Clean and Simple
Happy crafting fellow craft addicts, take care Jane x
