The image is from Nana Vic's called Timeless Bears which you can purchase Here
I printed the image onto Colortec paper and wanted to have another go at watercolouring using printed images so I left the image for three days to make sure really dry. I used Tea Dye Distress inks on the male teddy and Antique Linen on the female. the rest of the images were coloured with Stargazers Watercolour Palette, which has a lovely sparkle to it and I totally forget about unless the grandson comes to play, cos he just loves painting with it.
I used my oval nesties and then triples embossed the image which kinda took away a lot of the colour and also made the Stargazers paint run a bit :-( But I quite liked the effect so carried on regardless. I distressed the matting ovals with Vintage Photo and embossed them too. The sentiment got a wash with tea dye and embossed too.
The flowers were a bit of trial and error I tried making chiffon flowers and after setting light to one or two pieces I did manage to make them but then decided they were too much for the image so had a rethink and used the outside petals with pinched flowers using my Nellie Punches.
