Might not be posting for a few days as its back to work tonight. Hope you all like paddington - think this stamp is great.
The image is a stamp from Stempels which I coloured using a friends promarkers - Quite pleased with the results as I had used a watercolour card - still making my mind up between copics and promarkers but think I am erring towards copics. I have booked on a class using copics at Grimsby Crafts so hope that will help me decide. I inked the edges with a red ink and mounted it on some blue paper from my stash.

I based the card design on a sketch set by the Friday sketch challenge. The Paddington papers came from an old image of Crafts Beautiful and the sentiment is from Kaban wobblers sentiments. The buttons used are from my button stash.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -

Love the composition of this card Susie. I'm sure you will really enjoy your class.
Have you ever looked at Bev Rochester's blog?
She gives some great tutorials on colouring images. It's where I picked up most of the hints I use.

Just Gorgeous! Fabulous colours. Fabulous papers.
Good idea to try before deciding I just went for one of them and stuck with it.

This is lovely Susie, you've done a great job colouring him. I definitely love my Copics, I think the softer tip is easier to use. Sarah x
