Crafty Gals Corner - Challenge #107 - Anything Goes

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge #107 - Anything Goes

The sponsors for this challenge are:

Morgan's Art World

Prize: 3 Digital Images

Sasayaki Glitter

Prize: 1 Digital Image

Today I have used the Teddy Heart
digital stamp from Morgan's Art World, one of our generous sponsors this week.

I coloured the teddy and flowers using Copic markers (details below), the fussy cut him out of the hearts, going around the edges with a Memento Tuxedo Black dual tip marker.  Not sure what came over me, but I used my finger-tip knife to cut the tiny area out from between the flowers up on the teddy's left-hand-side.  With the white doily behind him, it would have been OK with just leaving those areas uncoloured.  Oh well, at that stage I hadn't even thought of using the doily, definitely need to plan the design ahead of colouring next time!

I added a touch of white to his eyes using a gel pen then added Glossy Accents to his nose and eyes for a nice, healthy shine.

I used my Cameo to cut the three top layers of the stacking diamond design (enlarged 7.25" x 5.5", file details below), then I manually cut a white textured cardstock (to make the background for the diamond designand two heavy weight smooth cardstock (to make the card base).  I scored the back panel of the card base at 0.75" to make the "top fold", adhering it with book binding adhesive.

I cut a the white decorative doily then a smaller circle from a foam sheet to give it some dimension.
I cut four "hugs" in the same colours as the stacking diamond layers and adhered them together, slightly offset for more dimension.

Here are some photos showing the cool Action Wobbler mechanism and dimension with it and the foam layers.  You don't even need to touch the teddy for him to get jiggy, just the slightest movement of the card and he is dancing away ... it really is fun!
