Good evening, Crafty bloggers.

Today I have made a Halloween card featuring  my favourite bear.
It took quite some time to colour this image, in fact (blush, blush) four hours in total as I am the sort of crafty person that has to blend, blend, blend with my Polychromos pencils:) lol.
I have tried Sansador but, I just can't get the image how I would like it to look.
The image I have used is a set of 11 graphics from Teddy Bo at an amazing price of just £3.00.

Here is my card
I have used image TEDDYBO_213 found here
Medium ~ Polychromos pencils
Cardstock ~ Recycled col; Chocolate
Papers ~ Echo Park "Chillingsworth Manor"
Woodland branch punch ~ Martha Stewart
Flowers & 5mm pearls ~ WOC
Bat charm ~ The Ribbon Girl
Sentiment ~ freebie from Birdscards
I have printed out a second image  and cut out the bird, coloured him then I used sticky pads to place him on top to give a 3D effect.
I have sprinkled some Glamour dust over the cross on the tombstone  and used some Anita's 3D clear gloss on the lantern.
