My first Tatty Teddy card

My first attempt at this cute little bear, don't think he came out too bad, do you?

I did originally stamp him using London Fog memento ink, but he didn't show up very well after I had coloured him, so I restamped him with black ink, which was much better.

I used Copics to colour the bear and promarkers for the ballon.

Sentiment stamped using summer sky memento ink.

Added card candy to finish.
