Little Teddies

The Crafty Individuals challenge is asking for lace, buttons, bits and bobs. Really something to make me step out of my comfort zone! I've had this cute teddy stamp for a while, and now I decided to try it out. Also posting for the SimonSaysStamp Monday challenge (stencil it) and the WOW embossing powders challenge (Anything goes).

I stamped the teddies several times on a marker pad and proceeded to practise colouring with Promarkers. Four images, and I cut them up and pieced together the best parts so I got the image you can see on the card. The eyes and nose were finished with some Glossy Accents.

My background is a homemade mixed media one: paper scraps glued on scrap card, gesso, using sequin waste as a stencil to heat emboss flowers and teal spray mixed with white. I didn't have matching buttons, so I customised some ugly ones by heat embossing them a couple of times with white. The pink is the same Promarkers as on the dress, I find alcohol markers work well on heat embossing. I used some diecuts from my stash, the vellum flowers have been stamped with background stamps and heat embossed with white. Almost everything has been attached with my sewing machine, the poor thing sees practically no fabrics :)
