Popcorn in grey


Quick post tonight as I'm a bit late and I'm watching the X-Factor results that we sky-plussed earlier.... I'd intended to make a card with one of my new Elzybells stamps today, but there's so many of them I got a bit confused and couldn't decide what to make lol!  So I decided to make a card with one of the images I coloured at my demo yesterday - a little experiment in colouring Popcorn Bear in grey instead of my usual brown.  I'm quite pleased with the results - I think he looks cute in grey :o)

I've coloured Popcorn with promarkers, and then added some glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador, and some sparkle with glamour dust.  The papers are GCD Studio 'ella blue', with DCWV cardstock, the sentiment is a downloaded one from Pink Petticoat, pearls from stash.  I managed to snap one of my koh-i-noor pencils in half while I was adding my glow!!!!  I couldn't believe it - I'm sure I'm not that heavy handed!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
