The teddies here remind me of when my kids were born and each were given a teddy to cuddle till they eventually broke…boys just love their teddies, don’t they?

I loved putting this card together…I got some inspiration from blogworld with the cutout pieces of card (and apologies to the wonderful person who did this, I can’t remember your blog to give you the credit) and some from an ad on tv which showed a slash of colour being ripped across the screen…so I picked the colours that I like to work with (broken china, chipped sapphire and peeled paint) and put those two ideas into this card.

The techniques that I love to work with are used in this card…ripping, masking, embossing, working magic with ranger distress inks and spraying with perfect pearls mist!
 The bears are gorgeous, just a simple stamp (from Inkadinkado) that has been masked and stamped five times.  I have then coloured them with copics (E000, E00, E11, E35) and the bow ties are in BG05 and YG06 – I was experimenting and found that the two colours really worked well together.  The butterflies are clear embossed on black ink on rich blue papers, and I then added some YG06 in the upper bits to blend it in with the overall feel of the card.  Oh, and the background inking is oversprayed with perfect pearls mist..blue.
Enjoy!
