Vintage Bear


I have fallen in love with TeddyBo & Co images - 
they are just so adorably cute, without being too fluffy and frilly -  if that makes sense!!
AND they are digis - so I can play around with the size of them.


I printed out this Teddy Bea twice, using the second image to decoupage her arms and letter, with foam pads.
She is coloured with Copics and a sprinkling of my favourite Glamour Dust.



Sorry about this fuzzy picture(below),  but you can just make out how 'popped up' her arms are.

I am entering her into the following challenges - 
Sketch & Stash - I just rotated Angie's fabulous sketch and this is my new Teddy Bea image.
Cupcake - Buttons and Bows
Stamptacular - You Choose!
Crafty Cardmakers - Cute with a Dark Twist. I took the 'dark' part literally and used black card and ribbon, as opposed to making it 'halloweenie'. Hope this qualifies!
Make it Monday - Linky Party



Supplies - Digi Stamp Teddy Bea from Teddy Bo & Co. coloured witb Copics and Glamour Dust
DP - Prima Printery / Sentiment Stamp, Whimsy Circle Postmark Collection/
Martha Stewart Border Punch.  Ribbon, pearls and button from my stash.
