peek-a-boo teddies

When I first saw this stamp I wasn't sure it would be one I would use very often as I wasn't sure quite how I would use it, but I simply couldn't resist the wee teddies cute face, what can I say I'm a sucker for a cute teddy.

I coloured both my teddies with promarkers,colouring the backgrounds to co-ordinate with the backing papers.

My first card I used greens as these are along with blues and other colours normally associated with males my comfort zone. I edged the image with gold promarker and finished off with some lemon ribbon to make it a little more feminine.

The papers are from a scrapbook set from qvc and pale green copy paper.

The second card I made using this wee peek a boo teddy i went out of my comfort zone and went pink.  I again used promarkers to colour the image and mounted it on dotty embossed paper which I also edged with pink promarker.

The backing papers for this card are scraps from a piece of K and co paper. The lace is white copy paper cut using a martha stewart punch. I added white satin ribbon to finish off.
