Teddy Bo Challenge #11 Shaped Cards.

                    Teddy Bea

My grandson Owen and his mother were here for a visit in April, and this image reminds me so much of him.  We spent a lot of time at the park, and of course blowing bubbles.  He could never get enough time playing with the bubbles.  I wish there was a Teddy Bo blowing bubbles (hint hint)!  Even still, this “Teddy Bea” is just as sweet!

I colored the image with Copics, and then used the rectangular Spellbinders die to cut it out, making sure to leave the bubbles hanging over the top.  Then I used a glue glaze on the bubbles for texture and shine.  This shaped card is called a Center Step Card, and it was very easy to do, and I love the look of it.  It’s always nice to do something besides a square card.  The layout of the center of the card, is taken from a sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  The designer paper is by Imaginisce, and it’s called Lucy Bird.  The flowers are by Prima, and the butterfly and pink daisy are dollar store finds.
