Teddy Bo Tuesday.....

Good morning!
It is Tuesday and time for another challenge at
Teddy Bo!!! This week they want to see Easel Cards.
(After my GDT spot ~ they have asked me to stay on
for the DT!!! I am so excited!! Who would have
thought I would go digital!! LOL)

Well after this card I thought maybe they would rethink asking
me and boot me off the team!! LOL  I didn't
have time to color another image and my wc paper just
wasn't acting like watercolor paper! It wouldn't
spread for the life of me and I was using the good stuff!
Not sure if it is the Texas air or what but this problem
has been happening on and off since I got here!

Anyways here is my card:

See how dark I had to go with Pretty Bea!!!! Or else I had some
lines that just didn't want to blend!!!
Here she is up close! By the time I got to her face the
paper was getting rough so that is why her cheeks appear raw! LOL
She really is an adorable image though!

The papers are a mix of Echo Park, JilliBean Soup and Crate paper.
I of course slathered it all up in crackle distress paint.

Make sure to stop and see the other DT cards as they have
made some beautiful cards.

 The prize this week is a gift certificate to Sentiments 4 you for $10!!!

Right, now every Tuesday Gayle has some new releases and like
every other week you don't want to miss out on them!!
They are so cute ~ I adore every last one of them!
Here is a peek and here is where you can go and get some
for yourself!  Enjoy ~ and can't wait to see your cards
using these adorable images! The challenge lasts two weeks so
you have plenty of time to play!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all
have a wonderful day!!!

I think your teddy looks very pretty. She is just the color I like for bears to be :) I love how you add all those layers to your cards and I always have to take a close up look and try to count them all. Beautiful work, as always. Connie :)

Absolutely stunning and there's NO WAY I'm throwing you off the DT!!!

so adorable Kathy! love the Spring colors and your sweet designing! Are you using hot press w/c paper? It is quite different than cold and the color doesn't move on it like it does on cold press. I've found that colors change or do weird things if I try to re-work them too! All of life is education...boo! lol Now if we could just buy time!!! : ))
