Elzybells Challenge #19!

I've given into the pressure (albeit my own!) and decided to get more Copics. I thought I'd treat myself to 10 every pay day, that way it doesn't seem so expensive! I got them from Cult Pens who seem to be the cheapest. I ordered them on monday afternoon and they arrived on tuesday!! Amazing!
Anyway, I thought I'd give the Elzybells challenge a go seeing as it's a fab sketch! Here is my card using this cute little bear, as you can see my colouring needs a little bit of practice! I loved this sketch though and I'm sure I'll use it again! I also decorated the inside to use up a bit more paper - I've got a scraps mountain to get through! Thanks for looking!

Stamp - 'Baby teddy towel' from Elzybells coloured with Copics
Papers - 'Nighty Night' download from Sweet Shoppe
Sentiment - computer sentiment with 'Burst my Bubble' font
Ribbon & charm - stash
Stars - punch
Circles - Nestabilities

What a cute card, I love it. Lucky you buying more Copics, I have yet to start, I must prove to my hubby that I use stamps and the pens I have first, I mean you have seen my shed, what you have not seen is his shed that has been taken over by my stash. LOL. Love Avril xxx

I hear you! Those copics can be so addictive! Once you have a few you need a ton! LOL! This card is just the sweetest Beth! The colors are so beautiful for a boy and the coloring on your image is gorgeous! You really did an amazing job with this sketch!

Wow, you certainly can handle Copics. I don't have any :( but do have a huge stash of Promarkers instead. The card looks wonderful -- very apt for a new baby boy.

Hi Beth! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. I love your Elzy card and I actually just got this stamp myself and after seeing your card I am inspired to use it!
Have a wonderful day!

Stacey said...

Brilliant colouring Beth! I totally love it. I told you it was easy when you had similar and more blendable colours!

I do exactly the same with the purchasing and buy about 10/15 a month. Could never afford to buy loads in one go! ~♥~
