Into the dragons lair again!

This time I am posting before the challenge finishes! The image in the Dragons Lair Designs Facebook Progressive Challenge is a lovely bear about to head off somewhere, I wonder where! It’s particularly apt on a personal level because yesterday we started the process of hunting for a new home having just sold ours. It’s been over 15 years since we last bought a house and boy has it got more complicated. Still I am confident the right house is out there for us to turn into a home. God has never let us down yet when it comes to having a roof over our head, even if the going has been tough at times.

Materials used:SAM_2589(watermarked)
Dragons Lair Designs – Teddy on Suitcase (available by request from the Facebook page)
acrylic sentiment stamp from stash
black archival ink pad
stamping card
Copic pens
brown and dark teal card
15cm square card blank

Print out the image at the required size. Print out  a second image of just the bear at the same size. Colour both images in with Copics. Trim the complete image to the correct size for the front of the card. Mat onto the dark teal card.

Cover the front of the card blank with brown card and attach the topper in the middle. Cut out the second teddy, shape it slightly and attach over the base teddy using gel glue.

Thanks for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    The teddy bear image you used for your card is adorable Pippa, and you’ve done a beautiful job with the colouring. I like the double matting too.
    Congratulations on selling your home… good luck with the house hunt and with the move!
