The stopper for the easel was created using matching polka dot card and cutting the edge with the scalloped outer edge die from the Beautiful Buckle die set and this was added to the card on 2mm foam pads. And then decorated with stamps from Marmalades world .
Materials to make this card:-
White 7x7 card blank
Green card stock
Craft perfect water colour card
Nuvo Water colour pencils Hair/skin tones

The card is 7x7 with mat & layered and the white layer has had the pierced square die set applied and then I
cotton thread has been added to the design and stitched all the way around the edge.
Then for the backing I stuck with the green and white colours and used the cockle shell die set as a backing for the sentiment which was placed on the Tim Holtz stamping platform and stamped with Nuvo Black Hybrid ink ,the gorgeous wee teddy was stamped again using the platform but onto water colour card and then coloured using the hair/skin tones pencils and blending the colours out with a water brush and just adding more colour bit by bit, remember it doesn't matter how long it takes to colour it's not a race enjoy what you are doing I find water colouring very relaxing and as I have said before it's a good place to start as water colouring is very forgiving if you go over the lines just apply a little water with a brush and remove the colour .
The card was then finished off by adding a gingham bow and natural wooden button just slightly inked with nuvo brown hybrid ink. And a matching mini bow to teddy.
