Stamptacular Sunday BEARnecessities

Wow another week has passed by which means it is time for some Stamptacular fun! This week our challenge is called "BEARneccessities" and we were lucky enough to be given another image from Teddybo to play with. I know I have said it before but I love these bears they are so darn cute and so much fun to colour.

Our sponsors this week are:

PRIZE: $10 gift certificate


PRIZE: Winner’s Choice of 3 Digi Images!

Without sounding egotistical I really like my card that I have for you this week. The sketch I pulled out from my folder very basic but effective I think. I also love how everyone is just using a bit of die punched paper in with the embellishments (you will get what I mean when you see the pic) and the double bow thing so I just had to give this a try!

The colouring I had heaps of fun with again and tried some different things with. I have used some deep purple to go with the red giving it a bit of a dirty feel and for the boots I have added a tinge of red to them to try and pick up some of the reflection from the boots. Now I realise that if I had of done this properly (as in using an artists approach that the reflection on the boots are probably in the wrong place) but to be honest I really don't care!!! Well that's not totally true I do care but I sometimes find that I am trying so hard to get the light direction and this and that right that generally forget to have fun with the colouring.

Ok ok enough rambling from me, boy I seem to be doing that a lot lately, here is my card:
