Good Afternoon Blogger's. I hope that you all had a wicked time celebrating the New Year. It was very quiet this end - due to everyone being ill. But hey, that's not stopped me from carrying on and getting this wonderful card finished.
Teddy Bea, is my new friend and gosh she's been up to so much and I have only known her for a while......here's hoping it rubs off on to me, cus I so need her energy!
This is a pre-view of Bea as she won't be launched until later on in January. What do you think of her? Isn't she just the cutest bear you have ever seen?
Bea, will have her own site and be sold as a digital stamp. At the moment we are after some feed back from you girls and some ideas on how you would like Bea to look on her travels in Blogland. You are the card makers and very talented too, so your inspiration is needed for her launch. Would any of you like her to be sold as a coloured image too. I know some crafters do struggle with colouring and getting the shadows right. Your feed back is well needed. Oh - we are also after some Design Team Members too.......so if you are interested and have the time to make a couple of cards a month, do get in touch with me asp. There will be lots of challenges on Bea's site too...with some great prizes. Also every now and then we will pick a card from all participants and they will win some candy - how exciting is that?
Ok - a little about my card. Bea is getting ready for Valentines....her card is written and waiting to be sent to her loved one Bo.
I have used NitWit Collections for my papers. Gosh, they printed off just perfect. Though I did only print at TEXT cus I didn't want them too dark. The collection is called Quilty Pleasures
The back of my card. Card size is 7" x 7". Used Marianne Designs die-cuts for the swirls and Spellbinders too. Flowers are all from the wonderful WildOrchid Crafts - link is on my side bar.
Organza ribbon is thread through the heart and tied in to a bow.
Side view of finished card.
Coloured Bea with pro-markers..............warm greys/tan/sandstone/sunkissed pink/putty.
Now as she is a digital stamp, I created the shadow around her on the computer...which I think gives a really good finish. Added punched leafs and gems to finish off.
I have lots and lots to do today, so will be back later on this evening. Do think about Bea's travels...how and where you want her to go and what you wish her to do or wear. If you would like to be on the design team - give me a SHOUT. Your feed-back is very important.
Loads of Love
