I don't know if it's just me but I remember when a week was a week. I don't understand what happened, but this week seems to have been only 2 days long!?!?!?!? Too much to do, too little time.
Before we have a look at the wonderful inspiration from the design teams this week, let's take a peek at what's new in store.
...and this week's DT inspiration
First up Team B who are hosting the current challenge.
I´ve used the sweet Bea with the balloon and coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils. The Cardstock is from SU and the pattern paper is from DCWV. I´ve decorated with rhinestones and flowers.
Still following the theme of B & W + one other colour...Pink.
Used new Teddy Bea with Balloon, added 'Happy Birthday' and sentiment using computer. Stamps Magnolia stars in black and painted pink with liquid pearls. Magnolia stars border embossed with pink distress powder, wooden butterfly painted black, used Magnolia paper and used white Dabber paint around the edges :0)))) I have used different shades of pink :0)))
I have made two little things for the black, white and a colour of your own choice challenge.
I've gone for a pink theme this time I just
love these colours together.
Finally got round to colouring this fab image in,
it reminds me of when I was a teenager
many moons ago singing along to Aha and Fleetwood Mac in my bedroom in front of the mirror.( Don't laugh).
Morten Harket was going to come in his limo to my school and marry me.
I'm still hoping..Lol....!
I have coloured her with Polychromos pencils.
The Papers are from Raspberry Road.
The flower and leaves are from CREAlies.
Sentiment is a digi stamp from Cuddly Buddly.
Angie Harket (in my dreams) ha! ha!
Colored with my Touch Markers..
The papers I've used are from my scrap-box..
Ribbons and flowers I bought from WOC..
The text stamp comes from hAnglar & stAnglar..
I've used a little bit of cheese cloth.
This is a larger card than I usually make -
measures 7 inches by 7 inches.
I printed TEDDYBEA_107 a little too large.
Papers used are - Papermania - HENBURY LANE - lush!!!
Coloured with Poly Pencils - blended with Sansodor.
Extra fine white glitter added to water.
Flowers / Gems - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon - from my stash.
I´ve played with the sweet image "Love showers" and colored it in brown tones. I´ve used only cardstock in black and white and I have decorated with clear rhinestones and punched hearts. I´ve used a Martha stewart edge punch for the heart border.
I've made a new card with Bea in the meadow
and a few from Team A
Here is one I've made using Echo Park's Apothecary Emporium papers. I don't do Halloween but I liked these papers because of their strong colours and generic appeal.
Ok, got my Copics refills and had to give the challenge a go!
More brown that black maybe..but I chose brown as my extra colour
Hope you like it!
Its a DL card, as I wanted to keep it quite simple, I have coloured it with promarkers and really love the effect its given. I kind of thought that it still went along with the challenge. I've used Teddy Bo and Co papers, they are just sooooo gorgeous! The sentiment reads - Thinking of you now and always.
I've used one of this weeks new releases to create my card for a new arrival, isn't that stork just fabulous! Image is coloured in Photoshop, the papers and word art are from Nitwits, paper roses made using a Marianne Creatables die, leaves a CREAlies die, and the scallops are made using a Nellie Snellen border die. There is lots of glitter, the ribbon, and the pearls in the flower centres are from stash.
Here's a quick look at a card made by Helle using one of the
FairyDoodler images available in the Teddy Bo Store.
