Sugar Nellie GDT-My Ted and Me

Todays card is the 2nd of 3 Mary Hall stamps new from Sugar Nellie This little cutie is called My Ted and me and is avaialble now fromFunkykits. I used a sketch for a challenge  and decorated with Wild Orchid Roses and silver leaves and a teddy bear charm from my stash
 I thought I would paper piece this time just for a change.Stamped out first onto plain cardstock and coloured roughtly with copics.
 Next I stamped out on a pink patterned paper and cut out her dress Finally I stamped ted again and coloured him first with Copics and then shaded the darker areas with dark brown prisma pencil I like this method for teddies as you can get a good rounded feel and teds have to look rotund I think
Now I have to admit to a bit of a disaster with my first attempt.
 I had just about finished when a couple of promarkers rolled of the arm of the sofa. I bent down to pick them up came back and went back to finish my last bit of shading when suddenly browny red stuff started to drip all over the image. Ruined! Couldnt think what the heck was happening until I realised that one side of my newly coloured bob had ended up in my saucer of Sansador and had dripped hair colour onto my just finished creation. Sometime I just don't beleive the things I do!
So this is Ted and me #2 minus the  drips
Hope you like

  1. What a lovely image, it's made in to a beautiful card. Sorry about the mishap! Hazel x

  2. just adorable! I love her paper pieced dress! Hugs Juls

  3. Hi Fi, This is simply adorable. Lovely image and pretty papers. I really didn't mean for you to take my gremlins Fi ! Hope no more disasters for you.

  4. Now that's interesting Fi. So if you need to remove a colour you dip your hair in sansodor! I'm gonna go check my bottle to see if it's one of the applications listed on there.

    Don't know what attempt #1 was like but attempt #2 is beautifully coloured and paperpieced and matches your BPs perfectly.
