The Paper Shelter Challenge #154 - Spring is Here!

Welcome to The Paper Shelter's "Spring is Here" challenge.
We are so looking forward to all of your 
submissions and seeing your creativity. 
My inspiration card that I am showing you 
today uses the cutest stamp called Teddy Picking Flowers. 
You can find it here!

Don't you just love this stamp? The little flowers just 
remind me so much of spring....
I tried to make them a little 3D by popping them up.
I added some texture to the bear by colouring it like I normally
would and then I did some crazy dotting with the blender pen, letting it dry and
doing more layers just over and over until I was happy with it.
I also added some Diamond Stickles to the flowers to add some shine!

Copic Markers

Bear: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, RV10, RV11, O
