Teddy Bo Challenge

It’s Teddy Bo Challenge time again and the challenge is to make a shaped card.  Soooo easy with the fab shaped cards from Which Craft UK.  And yes I am still into my red phase, the pink did try to edge in but was promptly pushed out when I found this Nitwit paper (also from Which Craft UK).  I have used Teddy Bea on Mushroom but went with the toadstool colours to bring the red in to the image.
This was going to be my GDT card for Teddy Bo but the lovely Gayle asked if I would like to stay on as a permanent DT member and of course I could not say no.  What would Ted think if I did lol.  Thanks Gayle.

I had such fun colouring Bea (even though it took me an absolute age lol).  I didn’t use much Prismacolor pencil either, I spent more time laying down the Copics over and over till I got the depth I wanted.

Copics used:
Bea: E35, E31, E30 and a wee bit of Burnt Sienna pencil
Reds: R39, R37, R35, R32 – my “go to” red colour combo
Greens: YG67, YG63, YG61, G20 – my “go to” green colour combo
Toadstool stalk: E43, E42, E41, E40

Check out those teeny tiny mushrooms, I got them from Meyer Imports, put them in a drawer and forgot all about them so was thrilled when I found them whilst looking for something else yesterday.  Too stinkin cute!  The gorge flowers are, as ever, from Wild Orchid Crafts25mm tea rose, 15mm roses, 8mm semi open roses.  The guipure lace is also from Wild Orchid Crafts.
