Knitting Bea

2011_02_04_1342
Hello, hope that you are well. I have a card to share today using one of the teddy bo & co images. I just love these sweeties.. 

2011_02_04_1342
I have coloured knitting Bea with Distress inks, so there is no copic list at the end..
the papers on this card are My minds eye not sure which paper stack though.. Sad smile
the limited edition sentiment is hanglar and stanglar.  buttons and flowers are from my stash, as is the charm. the ribbon is stampin up.

The inside is decorated to compliment the front.

This is sooooo cute!! I love the way you colored the glasses... it looks so real!
Do you make those boxes yourself too and is there a pattern to find somewhere? It is always a problem to send a card where I attached flowers on etc.
have a nice day, jolanda

Rach, you just amaze me, there isn't a medium that you haven't mastered!! Never would I have guessed that you used distress inks...it is so vibrant... You have such a way with the brush whether it's a paint brush or the brush tip of a copic, your hand is fluid every stroke brushed with perfection. This card is just stunning, I have learned so much from you just from visiting your blog and I thank you for sharing your talent, and teaching me so much...

Hugs
Debbie

Tina said...

Awwwwww Rach this is just sooooooooooooooooo cute... yes I did put sooooooo many oooooo..... awww.... Can i be a thicko... and ask a question... I have a toner printer and I've been looking at these Teddy Boo images thinking i'd be rubbish at colouring them in copics if only i could use distressing inks... does it work if you print the image using a toner printer and use distress inks? or do you have to do something to the image? Sorry to ask so many questions hun, but these are so cute and now i've seen what you've done I really want to try one... Loving the glasses, very nice touch... soooooooooo cute.... Crafty Hugs Tina xx

Tina said...

Oooooo I forgot to say, thank you so much for your very kind comments about the box... I'm going to try using two folds instead of three... I need an eight by eight tomorrow so it will be perfect, thank you for the tip... Crafty Hugs Tina x
