Hello, how are things in the world of you?
I’m here today to let you know that there is a new challenge starting over on the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards blog and our theme this fortnight is Teddy Bears!
Our sponsor is the fabulous Ladybug Crafts Ink and they were very generous to let the DT each pick an image to work with and I chose Swing Billy, available here.
I printed Billy off onto watercolour card and coloured him with Inktense Pencils. I added clouds to the sky using a Memory Box die but like a wally I decided to cover most of them up with a Spellbinders tree die which is ironically called Just Swingin’. You can just about see them I think. Oooops!
I used my ‘older than I care to remember’ Tonic mini daisy punch to add some flowers to the tree and a Tattered Lace die to give them some leaves.
So as not to upset the clouds having so viciously covered them up previously I fixed some more to the top, adding a touch of Stormy Sky DI for shadow.
I made a bow from brown Silky Crush Ribbon, and punched a larger flower out to match the others and that went on the top. The sentiment is from Tattered Lace.
I thought I was going to mount all this onto an A6 top fold card and leave it at that but it lacked something. So I cut 2 of the largest rectangles from the Spellbinders Fanciful Lattice set out of Centura Pearl to make a card blank.
I hope you will join us at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards. It’s a great challenge and who hasn’t got a teddy bear somewhere in their stash? Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and play along!
Thanks so much for looking!
