Hi....another weeks rolled round,time's flying this year.....Sunday again which mean's it's time for another challenge over at JUST CUTE BEARS,where this week we have an "open theme" for you,which mean's you can please yourself what you make...all we ask is you use a cute bear somewhere on your card/project.
I decided to make a teddy bear shaped card,i used a template from a Anna Marie CD.
The gingham cardstock is DCWV "Nanna's Kitchen".....i so love working with gingham and think it's perfect for baby cards /projects.
The brown textured cardstock is also DCWV which i've used for his paws and patches.....i used a black fine liner to add faux stitching and to draw is face,his nose is an oval clear gem which i coloured black with a permanent marker.
The sentiment is a Royal & Langnickel of the best rub-ons i've found to use.
There are three layers to him and i've edged them using Antique Linen Distress Ink so that you can see his body parts better...i've also used dimensional foam pads to his body and head to give him alittle more dimension.
He is also gingham on the back with a "Cherish" definition rub-on (i should have taken another photo of the back view,but i was in a rush and must be my age!)
I've used very thick and sturdy acetate cut to the teddy shape...from a distance it makes it look like he's free standing.....must say i'm pleased with how this as turned out and i'm going to do a pink one now.
I would like to thank all who joined us on last weeks challenge....and hope to see you all again this week.
Have a lovely day
Take care
