Yes I know ... Christmas is a long way off, but I found some photocopies of some drawings I did many, many years ago, while clearing out my craft room.
"Nice" stamps were few and far between or too expensive for my pocket.
So I drew this image along with many other Christmas Teddy images to make cards for the children I worked with.
I'm afraid my drawing skills didn't progressed much after I hit 12 years old.
But still, I thought I'd try colouring one of these images using Copic Markers to see how it turned out.
I have to say it does looks better coloured with markers.
Photocopying them all those years ago was not only a huge time saver, but toner doesn't run when you add water. Which meant painting them was a lot easier.
In those days finding an ink that didn't bleed when water was applied was difficult.
