Bamboo and Teddies

Welcome

I love this teddy punch, and these wee fellows were punched out of a snippet of kraft card and sponged with espresso ink, and the features were drawn in with a fine line pen. I then perched them on the bamboo background.


I made the background using part of a large stencil that I was given - it is unmarked. I used Memento  inks Bamboo Shoot and Cottage Ivy with blending brushes


The number was die cut out of glitter gold card and inserted in a green oval, which was mounted over a (matching) scalloped gold oval.


The sentiment was stamped in the Bamboo Shoot ink on another snippet, and trimmed into a banner.  This was mounted off set over a layer of green card, and a strip of lace,


which matches the lace mounted to the side of the main panel

Such a sweet card Maxine - a great idea and also super use of snippets of course. You entered more than a total of 10 challenges (11), I'll let it go but the Playground does ask for no more than a total of 10. Hey though, what's one over anyhow?!

Hugs
