Cutie Pie Challenge – Teddy Bear’s Picnic!

Hello, how are you keeping?

Today we have a brand new challenge over at the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog  and our theme this fortnight is Teddy Bears Picnic! So use an image of a bear (picnicking or not) on your project!

I decided to make a pop up scenic card, and after watching the fab tutorial given by Dena from the LOTV DT here I decided to give my Inktense Pencils another go!

Stamps: LOTVPatchwork Bunch of Balloons’ & ‘Patchwork Daisy’
Sentiments: LOTV ‘Everyday Grungy Messages’ & ‘Happy Times’ tag
Dies: Tattered Lace fence – Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’ – Spellbinders ‘Whimsical Tree’, ‘Timeless Rectangles’ & ‘Standard Circles’
Punches: Tonic mini daisy
Paper/Card: Watercolour card – LOTV ‘Up, Up & Away’ & ‘Promises’ paper pads - Kraft
Colouring/Ink: Inktense Pencils
Others: Martha Stewart paper clay – mini pearls - liquid pearls
Clueless Clay Moulding: The chocolate cake and slice with purple icing. It’s a silly thing I know and could have been tons better but it makes me smile! It’s completely calorie free too!!! J

Pop over to the Cutie Pies blog to see the amazing inspiration created by my teamies and the fab prize up for offer to our cutest entry.

Thanks so much for looking, and have a great day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
