Tiddly Inks Challenge - Paws For Thought!

 - Good Morning Tiddly Inkers -

Hi everyone, I'm here to share my Design Team card with you for this week's Tiddly Inks Challenge #163. Our fab theme this week is 'Paws For Thought!' so grab your Tiddly Inks animal stamp (anything that has paws of course!) and join in with us.

For my card this week I used the gorgeous digital stamp called Wryn - Thank You Beary Much (grab it now it's only a $1 in the store). I've been dying to use it in a project for ages and well I thought teddies have paws so this theme is perfect.

I couldn't resist paper piecing her comfy chair and decoupaging everything else....I really wanted the teddies and Wryn to pop. I won't lie it did take me a while to print, colour and cut everything out, but I'm really happy with the result. I hope you like it :)


Here's What I Did
I used a 7" x 7" white card base which I matted with lilac card. Using my computer software I printed the image 4 times directly onto my colouring card stock, coloured sections I needed with Copic pens then fussy cut them all out.  The full image was printed again onto 2 different patterned papers and cut out. All the pieces where glued into page but I added foam tape behind Wryn and one of the bears to give dimension, to bring the bears to life I used glossy accents on their eyes and noses.

The finished panel was glued to a die cut scalloped square and added to the card base using foam pads. To finish off I added a touch of glitter and a few stamped and die cut paw prints, along with a die cut heart.

Janine, this is a beautiful card. Your colouring is gorgeous and I love your clever card design with the paper piecing. I have to say I am slightly in awe of your fussy cutting - you must have the patience of a Saint - I struggle to cut a straight line with a guillotine!

What a wonderful design and I reckon all that fussy cutting was worth it for adding such a lovely dimension to the card, and the paper pieced chair looks gorgeous!

Big hugs, Kat xx
