"This week I decided to make a wall hanging :o)..I have used one of the Three Little Piggies images and cropped it down. I have coloured the image with Prisma Pencils blended with Sansodor. The papers are from a First Additions Pad called Summer Breeze {which are very sparkly}....The flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House, the sentiment is by Hero Arts. Gems and all other embellishments are from The Hobby House. "

I've used Ballerina Bea, isn't she just too sweet for words! The paper is Basic Grey Lili Kate. The flowers, doily, Raffia Ribbon, pins and metal corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ballet shoes charm is from The Ribbon Girl. I have added Stickles and Glimmer Mist to the flowers, Glimmer Mist to the paper and doily and Glamour Dust to Bea's Tutu. Bea has been coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.

My image was colored with distress inks and
twinkling h20's. I also added some stickles to her
wings and wand!

I needed to make a birthday card and I just
adore this sweet image for them!! I think
this was the first image that I seen that
got me hooked!  Papers are Bo Bunny, the
flowers and lace are from WOC and for my bling
I have added glitter to my flowers and stars and
threw in pearls around my flowers and on my
flourishes and tag bow!  I also added crackle paint!

Not sure what Bo's been up to but he looks very chilled lol!
He didn't even mind the glamour dust :c)
Maybe it's more Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

The background is Tiddly Inks that I just printed out and added some glamour dust. The wording is one of my new stamps from Imagine That.

The backing card is mirror card which a a gem like pattern in it you can't really see that to well on the photo. Lots of gems down the side of the ribbon and of course on Teddy Bea not forgetting the glitter! I've made it for my daughters birthday in 2 Saturdays time. She will be surprised as I normally forget to make her card!!!!

I love Art Deco and flapper girls, so as soon as I saw this image I knew it was the one for me.

I cut out the deco shape and covered it with a Debbi Moore paper and some sparkly, blingy self adhesive glitter ribbon I bought in a local craft shop absolutely ages ago. 

Bo and Bea are coloured in Photoshop then I added lots of glitter to Bea's shoes and her headband with a crystal in the centre. I used Nail art crystals to make her necklace and some feathers from a Primark hair clip for the back of Bea's headband and the flower arrangement, flowers are from stash and dusted with glamour dust. I also used glossy accents on the bears noses, Bo's cufflink and the violin case fasteners. 


We love seeing yours too!...so join in the fun!
So....just like always the link to submit your entries will be on the top right hand side of the Teddy Bo & Co Challenge blog......x
