Teddy Bear"s Picnic

 I am going to enter this card into the following comps..
This card was a lot of fun to make...these teddies look soooo cute. I have distressed some white card with Barn Door, Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade DI. It is put onto some dark brown CS which has been gold embossed around the edges (Tim Holtz gold embossing powder) then mounted on dark brown CS again. Then onto some red CS, then raised with magic mount. The teddies are masked, ties are in a red copic and distress stickles.  Then the lot is masked again while I sprayed some copper around the teddies.  I was attempting to get the teddies to "pop"....And it worked!  The paper in the backgrounds is just some scrap vintage paper, which I scrapped over with all of those DI mentioned earlier and adhered to dark brown CS. The flowers, buttons, and ribbon are all from my stash.  I think that just about covers it.  Enjoy!
