Teddy love....

How are we? I have had a really lovely few days at home this past week.. nice and quiet. And I can't exactly believe how close it is getting to Christmas! Town is stupidly busy, people still buying presents and the car parks are choc a block! Meadowhall the other day was totally full in the car parks - 12000 spaces and they were full!

So, today, it's been a nice quiet day getting the car sorted out - general stuff - and back to blogging to share this little card.

I am in love with these cute little bears... and combined with the pinks and reds they're just perfect for any occasion. 

I've kept this card quite nice and simple so it's suitable for a beginner. All I've used is a little layering on the topper and a border punch for the edges.

Here they are in closer detail.

You don't even need to have any glitter glue - there is encapsulated glitter on the heart and other areas of other images, and you can see how it adds a little bit of glitz to the card.

And a bit of bling? Well, of course you need some... so a small amount of Anita's ribbon and some sparkly Papermania gems was added to finish off the card and add a bit of luxury.

So... that's the step by step decoupage... and what if you fancied a bit of stamping?

Oh gosh..... I've just realised the lace has decided to do a bunk! Sorry about that.. let's just focus on the stamping eh? lol.

The card was stamped in Me to You grey ink - it was bought out a while ago, and it makes a perfect permanent ink.

I then coloured it with the Artiste markers in a grey tone. Just odds and spots of colour..

Here's the watercolouring on the card in a little more detail..

Well... I hope you like these cards. i'll be back soon with a few more - and maybe not teddies! lol.
