Ballerina Bea....

Good Morning!!!
I am excited about today!! The Tuesday
releases over at Teddy Bo have been released and they
are just adorable!!! Particularly some Teddy Bea's that
are ballerina's!! I had some fun coloring them in!

I have two cards to share. They are essentially the same image
but one is line art and the other has the sketch look.
I needed two birthday cards for the girls so I just made
very similar ones with the images.
Here is the first one ~ the line art:

I have played along with the sketch at Papertake Weekly for this card
and of course I used a ton of distress crackle paint and some snow-tex.

Here is a close up ~ as you can see I used a ton of glitter on
this card!! Some pink very fine glitter.

Here is the second card which uses the sketch image.

I have used the sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces for this one.

I choose to use pink glitter on her dress and some stickles on her
wings and pom poms.

I wanted to do a picture of the cards side by side but I had to use
them for the girls respective birthday parties as I made
them but here I put the colored images so you can see
the difference between the line art and sketch.
I had to do this to see what I liked better and I think
I prefer the sketch but the rest of my family disagreed with me
and they all went with the regular images!!!
What do you like better?? Just curious.
(I understand the image is slightly different but as far as
the look of it goes!)

Anyways here are all the images that came out today!!
Don't forget about our shape challenge and also the DT call
that is going on!!

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

Hi Kathy :)

Oh...look at little ballerina Bea! My god, she´s simply adorable :)
Love the vintage /shabby chic feeling you´ve added to this card and the sentiment is so perfect! Looks so good on craft :)
As usual you´re colouring is over the top gorgoues :)

O, this is so yummie! They are both b-ful and shine to me from my laptopscreen :-) I also love the sketch picture, I think the softer touch is what attracting me, but ofcourse we are all used to the other one... and sometimes family doesn't like change... ;-) I recognise that!
Yes, the Maja papers are delicious, they are from Norway, this is their site. Hope you can find some. If you really want some and can't get it I can send it to you, let me know :-)
Hope you're doing well hun. Thanks for your very sweet comment on my
Tilda card. Till next time!
Hugs Ing

Ingrid said...

Oeps, the link didn't work I think. So hopefully this will do...
Hugs Ing

Ingrid said...

O, and I made the mistake that the papers are from Norway... they are from Sweden! I saw .nu in the url and that's why I thought Norway...
Ok, this is my last comment ;-)
BIG hug Ing
