Teddy Bear Wedding!

Hello my friends and those who live in the states are you ready for your 3 day week-end? My hubby is thrilled!! We don't have anything planned. On Wednesday,  My daughter, Amy and her two children, Abbie and Andrew came and stayed overnight.   It was great seeing them and gosh they are growing so fast! Abbie's hair is past her shoulders and she looks so pretty with her braided pig tails.  She will tell you  "I am  leaving my hair grow really long, so I can give it to a sick kid"  She wants to donate her hair, so a wig can be made for a child!  Is that not awesome for a four year old to say and do? I tell ya...I am so proud of her!

Since it is summer and I love Teddy Bears! I am presenting to you a Teddy Bear Wedding! I just love this stamp and it's been a long time since I have used it. The challenge this week at  Teddy-stampers  is "Love My Teddy" and nothing says love like a wedding!

Tip of the day:  Copic's When coloring with Copic's and your final piece ends up with no real highlights or shadowing, there are several ways to correct to it so you  have more of a 3 D look.  If you are using light colors for ex:Y06, Y04, Y02, Y00. Darken you dark area again and blend without taking your lighter colors over the dark area. If you still want more of a 3 D look...take Y08 and go over what you were coloring withY06 and skip using the Y04 when you re-blend it.. If you are using the darker reds or blues for example: B39, B37, B34, B32 and your area is too dark with no highlight. Take your colorless blender and using the side of it...not the tip and slowly and lightly go over your light area. Let it dry and repeat until you have it light enough. However, at this point you might notice some uneven coloring. Take B32, using the side of the marker and not the tip and go over the light area again.
I used Stickles, Ruby Slippers on her head piece, flowers and corsage. I love this color. It is much thicker  like Frosted Lace and easier to make 3D effects!
