May all your dreams come true

I'm so chuffed! I discovered that if I change my settings on my printer to draft or fast mode it will print digi images in a way that I can watercolour (in previous efforts with digi's the ink ran) . So here is my first watercolour of Bo. I used TeddyBo 051 which you can find here and coloured with Inktense watercolour pencils. The sentiment and hearts are from a Marion Emberson stamp set.

I have kept it clean and simple as I am entering the Less is More Challenge - neutrals.
Edited to add - It looks like Bo's sweater is yellow. I can assure everyone that I only used shades of brown watercolours. I did 'brighten' my photograph using Picasa and perhaps that's why it looks yellow - it looks pale brown irl!

Here are some sneaky peeks of the bears that are due to be released on Tuesday 6th March and as Rolf would say - can you guess what it is yet? And, new stock is arriving every day and as I wouldn't want you to miss out on anything why not take two ticks to sign up for the newsletter. Be the first to find out what's new in. All the details are here.

I know what you mean about taking photos of cards ~ I spent ages at the weekend taking loads of photos that looked ok on the camera screen, only to upload them and find that the colour was nothing like the actual card irl!! But saying that your card looks gorgeous...really, really lovely!!
Love Emma xxx
