Teddy Bo's here again!!

I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the Teddy Bo challenge which is 'Seeing Double' - I love doing these off centre gatefold cards with a pocket on the inside. Teddy Bo is coloured with Copics, my Copics are not behaving at the moment, I can't make my mind up whether it is the intense cold here (we're on minus temperatures again) or possibly the daylight lamp I'm using to colour by as I've been colouring images at night. They are not settling into the card, sort of sitting on top and blending is a nightmare. I shall try colouring during the day without the lamp or get back to colouring with distress inks.

The edge of the image is inked with Pumice Stone distress ink and papers are from Pink Petticoat, Granny's Wallpaper. I used the heart nestabilities to make the three heart buttons, inked them with tea die distress ink them coated them with glossy accents. I used Spellbinders Labels 11 to cut out the image and sentiment, a Sizzix die for the leaves and the corners with the Martha Stewart corner punch (double loops I think it's called). The ribbon seam binding is from my stash.

Here is Teddy Bo two on the circles (cut with round and scalloped nesties) which I used to attach the ribbon to the back of the card.

Here is the inside of the card, and Teddy Bo 3!! Oooops, should only have 2 - I see disqualification looming again. This is one of the Teddy Bo labels which I think are going to come in so useful - I was going to turn this one into a laminated bookmark, but the thought of photographing the laminate put me off.

Well folks - it's nearly weekend again - I hope you all have a great one and thanks for stopping by.

Ahh Rica, you put such a lot of work into your creations, decorating the back and the inside too, what a lovely gift not just a card. See, you are definitely a teddy person now! lol. My copics play up when I colour under a light too, they sit on the paper and go a bit gloopy and shiny. CoB

Chrissie said...

I absolutely LOVE this Heather, in fact so much that I may have to try this fold out (and you KNOW I don't do folds!)
You're being very naughty lately as your last Teddy Bo made me pop over and buy some images myself (and I don't do teddies either!)
If you keep this up I shall have to stop visiting lolol!
Take care sweetie
lol Chrissie xx
