Welcome to all my wonderful readers. It means so much to me that you come to visit!
Today I have a Cuddles project to share with you. Cuddles images are a line of varied poses based on this adorable bear. You can purchase Cuddles (and more!) from Ildi Co. stamps.
Ildi is still running that great special of buy 10 for $20 - isn't that a great price?? Hurry - it's a limited offer!! Ildiko is also sponsoring this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge, so this project was created for that challenge! It's simple to participate. Just visit the inspiration store for the week (this week is Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage), pick out your inspiration piece (mine is this one), create your project, upload to a gallery or your blog, and link it here.
I picked the rabbit for my inspiration piece, because it is vintage inspired with button hinged arms. Those features really reminded me of vintage stuffed teddy bears, and the comfort they bring. Just made me all warm and fuzzy inside!
For this project, I used my nestabilities to create a frame on my Gina K cardstock base. I printed Cuddles on white, then colored him with my prismacolor pencils and OMS. On the top of this panel, I used my border punch as a mask, and colored it with Pebbles chalk. I created the background with Pebbles chalks, too. Then I applied SU! irridescent ice glitter over the entire panel (for a Gina K challenge).
Now for the commercial! Ildi Co. is hosting a blog hop on Saturday (Aug 29th), with all new images. Here's a sneaky peek for you! I think you will ADORE the new images - so be sure to stop by and check it out! It will be starting from Jenny's blog and you'll just hop from one blog to the next using the links provided in each post. FUN!!!
Ta for now, ~ky
