Teddybo Challenge - Christmas red or green must not be seen !!

Hi Crafty bloggers !!

This crafty creation is for the Current Teddybo Challenge - Christmas Red or green must not be seen !!

Oh my the weather is just pants !!! rain wind ! I am staying in today lol. We are having a lovely family dinner tonight so I am looking forward to cooking !! So many images to choose from ! I eventually chose Teddybea_165 lol. I had a go at paper piercing with Nicole's tutorial on Thursdays top tips. Will definitely be doing it again !! I chose just to paper piece her apron with a snowflake paper. I made this wee scene using Hero arts stamps with memento dew drop ink in London Fog ,where I added glamour dust and polar white flowersoft using a tombow glue pen .

The first reaction I got from my fella was it needs glossing !! lol that means glossy accents on the bauble lol ( He is now an expert !!) but I have ran out ;0(.  This was so easy to colour as Gayle has done the shading so you just colour there and it's so effective !!

I used my X-cut crimper to add texture to the papers and cricut frames . I painted all the edges with distress white crackle paint. The stars were cut and also painted .I used flowersoft and glamour dust again on these,  love this effect.  I then topped with a pretty lace bow and half pearl . I used this great sentiment which was free from Wordy Wednesday .

I made another cute star and used the Hero Arts Stamp set again ! Have not made an easel card for ages !!

I shall leave the recipe underneath hope your having a super weekend ! Thanks for visiting 
Lots of Crafty Hugs
