Teddy Bo tuesday

Good morning my friends :)
I hope you are all fine and that your summer weather is better than mine!
Hopefully the sun will come out today, but we sure have had rain for days...

BUT at Teddy Bo, team A is ready with a new challenge and this time we have a nice and easy one for you!

Such a great theme for me as my sisters wedding is getting closer and I still have a bunch of card orders for that :)
But I am not complaining at all!

I have made a weddingbook today with the lovely new image from the shop
 I think this is such a sweet image and would fit my sister and her coming husband perfect!

I have made a tutorial a while back if you want to learn how to make a bookcard yourself.
You find it here

The inside with a lovely recipe of love, some flowers and a glass vial filled with pearls and a note saying "love"

The sweet couple is coloured with Copics as usual and I will write the date for the wedding on the banner. Forgot to do it before I took the pictures...

Here you see the whole new release from Teddy Bo today
So gorgeous all of them and really a hard choice to pick out one to work with!
Head over to the blog and look at my fabulous teamies work too, I am sure you will be inspired!

Have a wonderful day friends

Under the water

Good evening my friends!
I have made a card with one of my fantastic Mayzy Art images. This one is called "Seafoam the Mermaid" and you can find this one and a bunch of other wonderful images here.
 I think these images are perfect when you love colouring as they takes a bit of time with the big hair and the folds, but the end result is really nice I think!!

Here we go:
Woooohooo, what a fabulous image!!
I draw some bubbles around her and tried to make it looks like she is under water :)

I have made a gate fold card, and closed it with tiny magnets under the lovely designpaper from Maja design. I am so in love with these papers and I think they fit every project I make :)

Inside I have made a writing space and used my punch around the page from Martha Stewart.

I have tryed a new thing for me, to use different colours on the same area, like her tail here. It is both blue, green and yellow and I loved the effect!!
My Copics:
Skin: E11-21-00
Hair: E59-39, YR 24, Y15, E50
Tail: BG 13-11-10, Y11-000, BG 01-000
Top: BG 57-01-000
Lips: R59-46-29
Eyes: E39-35-33-31
Belt: E59-57-55
Around her i have made bubbles with a Copic multiliner and BG 72-70, B01-00-0000 and covered the bubbles with stickles

Hope you like my card today :)
Big hugs to you!!
