Exciting News! I'm the newest member of the Open-Minded Crafting Fun Design Team!

Hi Everyone,

I have some EXCITING NEWS to announce. I have been selected to be a part of the Open-Minded Crafting Fun Design Team. This is an amazing opportunity to show off even more of my work. I am excited to work with this talented group of ladies!

Today's challenge over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun is "Water Water Everywhere".  We are teaming up with four awesome sponsors this week. Check out the challenge blog for all the DT's inspirational projects using Crafty Sentiments, Delicious Doodles, Paper Pretties, and Scribbles Designs digital images. I promise you that you will find a lot of new lovely images to color if you do ;-)

  I was given this adorable teddy bear image to work with by Crafty Sentiments . Make sure to check out all of their amazing images this week and if you get a chance, play along with us over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun! 

For this card I used paper in my stash along with Prima Flowers and Stickles to give the bubbles and shinny effect. I also used Spellbinder dies. I colored this little guy with the following Copic Markers:

E15, 17,18,27,29,70,71,74 
B000, 12,14

Here is a close up of my coloring:
