Bears and Stash!!

Well the new challenge Sketch and Stash started today so just had to have a go at their lovely sketch and Forever Friends challenged us to use our fav colour.
I combined the two and used purples/plums because I am just a wee bit partial to those colours.

My new stash was some Pro Markers but just not sure about them - I don't think I've done too great a job with the colouring you need quite a lot of the colours to create shading - mmm! it feels a bit flat - no depth of colour!! Never mind!

The cardstock is Anna Griffin and Coredinations and the gorgeous cute bear came from your lovely Emma
