Good Luck Teddy

This card has been made for one of my mum's work colleagues who is leaving to go to a different department within the same company. I have stamped the Whipper Snapper Li'l Standing Teddy out on to white CS and coloured with Copics {please see below for how I coloured him in} I then stamped the greeting below from the Woodware Mixed Greeting set, mounted to green CS and added to a white square card blank with DST. Ribbon wrapped around {from Dies to Die for} and secured with a button and linen thread. Prima flowers which have been coloured with a Copic marker added with BG pearls. I hope she likes it!


I thought I would show you the way I colour with my Copics:
I first used the darkest of my colours - E57 to where I wanted the darkest shades

I then went over and out a bit with the next darkest shade - E55


I then went over the whole thing with my lightest shade - E53

I then tend to blend in more with the two lightest shades - you can see this on the teddy's arm and legs


I then coloured the scarf and the ground using G40 & G82 - again using the darker shade first


Apologies for the rubbish photos but I hope some of you may have found it helpful!

STAMPS: Whipper Snapper, Woodware. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Basics. ACCESSORIES: Dies to Die for ribbon, button from Silly Monkey Crafts, Stampin' Up! Linen Thread, Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Opaline, Copic Markers.

  2. I love this cute card Michelle! Thanks for the photo tutorial, t has really helped. I think I've always put too much of my darker shade down first, but I think I might be starting to finally understand copics and the correct way of colouring! Thanks again.
    Hope, you're okay.
