My favourite bear

Hello lovely people,

Well, my weekend of working was not too bad and definitely made up for by a delightful day of crafting yesterday :-)

In fact, I was so chilled out from my day off that I nearly forgot what day it was and that it is time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday!
It's a lovely easy theme for you this week...


We have Crafty Sentiments Designs as our sponsor this week with a prize of 3 digi images :-)

My favourite animals for cards are bears and my most favourite of all are LOTV bears.

This image is a real golden oldie and is the very first LOTV stamp I bought...and one I have used time and again.
This time I added some liquid pearls to the flower centres...even the really teeny tiny ones!

Copic colours;
Bear: E40/41/42/43
Pink flowers: R81/83/85
Lilac flowers / bow: V20/22/25/BV08
Aqua flowers: G0000/BG11/32
Leaves: G28
Cellophane / letter: C00/1/3
Tag: E40/41/42
Ground: C0/1/2/3/4/5
