Birthday Wishes with Teddy Bea


I gave a peek at my new obsession yesterday with a card featuring Teddy Bo and today here comes along his girlfriend Teddy Bea!
I adore this image and I'll admit I have a sheet of her printed out ready to color again. I hope you like her as much as I do.

Card Recipe:
Image - When You Wish Upon A Star by Teddy Bo
Paper - Lace and Linen Stack by DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Lace - Offray
Scrabble Tiles - Hobby Lobby
Die Cut - Spellbinders
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
Pearls - Treasures by Shabby Chic
Heart Rhinestones - Stash



After coloring Bea I added Smooch Illuminate paint to her wings and star and when it had dried I added Liquid Embossing in Glass for shine. I added glaze to her boots too. I love how the paint shines through the glaze. I've had the wooden tile letters for years and although they make for a thicker card (wouldn't put her in an envelope) she's not going anywhere, she's staying with me and so it'll be fine :)
To make this obsession a triple threat be sure to tune back in on Tuesday for another project topped with a Teddy!
Have a great Sunday!
Katie
