It’s …. Teddy Bo Tuesday and that means new images are up on the website …. and Gayle has been thinking Christmas. You really do need to go and take a look at the new cuties, they are just the sweetest.
Before I get on to my Teddy Bo card I thought I would share a sneak peek of one of the cards I was commissioned to do for Jayne Nestorenko for her new release that goes on sale on Create & Craft on 24th 11am, 2pm and 6pm and Sat 25th 10am, 12pm and 3.00pm. Isn’t she just gorgeous! The stamp plate is called Hide and Seek and I used the gate, girl and bunch of flowers as well as the sentiment from the plate. I really loved working with these stamps and think they are Jayne’s best yet! I have 5 more to share over the coming week.
And for my Teddy Bo card I’ve used a Bo image and it’s the first Bo I have coloured up ….. and Bea has now been relegated to the norty corner because I just love Bo. I think it’s the puzzled look on his little face that gets me lol. Now then there’s a story behind this card, it was originally going to be a round card but I printed the image out too big and had already spent ages colouring it and it looked daft on the round card so I settled for a sort of easel card.
I have used papers from the Gradulations kit from Nitwit Collections, loving the browns and oranges – just perfect for a male card.
I spent quite a while colouring this image (all that grass!!!) although I didn’t use many markers.
Bo and his little pal: E44, E43, E31,R20, E40, E18, E15, E13
Top and Hat: B02, B01, B00, B000, B0000, YR18, YR02
Grass: YG67, YG63, YG61, G20
The sentiment is an old Elzybells stamp (I miss that company so much, their sentiments were just perfect for so many cards). The seam binding, button and twine is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little butterflies are punched from a MS PATP butterfly border set
And here’s what’s on offer tomorrow, the pic is linked if you want to pop across to the website for a closer look.
