Forever friends

Evening, I am really quite pleased with myself today as I think I have (at least partially) mastered colouring a Forever Friends teddy with Promarkers!

This is something that has caused me much frustration- no matter what I did the bears just didn't look right. However, today I tried a new technique of picking up the darker shade of ink with a light pen and then using it to shade with and it worked really well. I've included a photo of the Promarkers I used as it's also taken me ages to get the bear colours just right- he is coloured with vanilla, shaded with burnt sienna and his cheeks are coloured with blush. The other colours were used on his buns, plate, buuny and ears.

And here he is on a card....


Challenges- I heart Promarkers- four legged friends (bear and bunny!) and Forever Friends fortnightly challenge- anything goes.
Thanks for popping in today,
