Teddy with Present

Today's cards features a new Wild Rose Studio image from The Stamp Basket called Teddy with Present.  He would make a lovely Mother's day image, but today I've used him for a birthday card theme.

I've used some gorgeous papers called Lace Butterflies from Crafty Impressions which are pink and aqua coloured, so I'm in seventh heaven with this set!  I'm also using a new Memory Box Norrland flower die for the first time and I'm really liking it.  The petals were cut in white card, then I chalked up the centres with pink shimmer chalk and curled the petals around my paint brush handle to give them some dimension.  To finish them off I popped a coloured pearl in the middle.

The other die cuts were also cut in white card and then coloured with a pink Copic to match my colour scheme.  The pearls were easy to colour too, because they are on a clear plastic sheet so they don't move around when you colour them to match your theme.  It's a great way to buy your pearls as then you can colour them any shade you like depending on the colours you're using on each project.

What a lovely card you've made -I spotted it on MIM. The image is so cute and your coloring is beautiful. I've never thought of coloring pearls or use white paper for die cut details to color them to match the rest of the cards - thanks for the tip!
