Teddybella Times Two

Welcome to November! Wow, I can't believe how fast the months are going by! It's time for a new host over on the OCC and this month, Denise Marzec is the hostess with the mostest. For Denise's first challenge, it's All About the Coloring. Check out the Our Creative Corner Blog for all the fabulous samples from the OCC gals. We'd love to have you play along with us, so click here for all the details!

Today you get two cards from me, because I couldn't decide which one was better. The first one I colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol using the Gamsol Magic technique. I was going for a rattle made from punches and thought I'd be clever and color it with a stripe through the middle for the sentiment. Now that I've finished it looks a little like a pastel version of the Pepsi logo, though. LOL! I just cut a 1/4" strip for the rattle stem, punched a 3/4" circle and then a 1" circle around it for the hollow handle, and the top of the rattle is made using a 1.25" and 1 3/8" circle punch. The congrats sentiment is from the Great Expectations set. Although, my photo doesn't really show it, I used a Stardust glitter pen on the rattle and images, then blended with a blender pen for a lot of extra shimmer. Then I finished off with some bling and some American Crafts ribbon.

The second card uses the same Teddybella image from Stamping Bella, but I colored it with Copic markers. I doodled a frame around the panel and used a marker to color it in for a nice little frame. I did the same for the sentiment panel, which I made using stamps from the So Happy set. The mat is Riding Hood Red and I pieced together parts of a couple long rectangles to make a scallop mat large enough for the panel. I finished off with some white dots on the scallops and a gingham bow in the corner.
