Hugs! Hugs! Hugs!

Hello and welcome!

I have a few days off from work and as you have probably guessed...  I headed straight for my craftroom!  

I want to share a card I created using the stamp "Teddy Bear Hugs" from the  Gill Roberts' Collection (SP & Company).    I guess I am still on my "Teddy Bear kick! ".

So this is what I am up to this week.    I am trying out my new markers.   I wanted to try some of my new Touch Twin alcohol ink markers from (ShinHan).   I am still playing around with color combinations and unfortunately I did not keep track of the color combos that I used. I promise to start sharing them as I figure out good combos!  What is my impression?    I LOVE the ocverage and smooth flow of the ink.    Gorgeous and the marker feels so good in your hand.   OK - I ocnfess.   Anymarker feels good in my hand!   LOL    I am still in the trial and error stage right now but will start recording my color combos soon.  I plan to study Suzanne Dean's lists of combos at Color Me Creative.   She has some fabulous starter combos!

What else amy I doing?   I  want to  continue to experiement with my backgrounds and want to share one of my Intense Copic Faux Watercolor backgrounds for you. I really like how this one turned out. I have the darkest or most intense side in my shadow area and could probably have goon a couple shades lighter with my highlight side. I was using my Touch Twin and so I think I still need to play with them to figure out the intensity and hues.

I will be linking this card with the following challenges.

I hope you have a safe and crafty week. Stop by tomorrow to see what fun new technique I used with glitter and Copics!


  1. This is so sweet!! The colors are so rich and pretty and I love the flowers you made. Oh, wow and the background is amazing. I still haven't decided on the Twin Touch. I wish I could figure out which ones to fill in my collection with, it gets overwhelming trying to figure it out.

    1. Brown is an idea. Copics in the higher intensity get sticky with Copics. Suzanne says Touch Twin will not do that. :D

  2. Your card is gorgeous Marie, and your coloring is beautiful.

  3. Lovely Cute card Marie. I came over from Make it Monday.
    There is still one day to go for the Ready Teddy Go challenge "Spring'.
    Your card would be good for that challenge.
