Teddy Tea Time

I can't remember the last time I made a Tatty Teddy card, it's not through lack of stash either, so there was no reason for me to buy this cute stamp and pretty paper pack, other than the fact that they were half price in the Hobby Craft sale!  I'm renowned amongst my friends and family for my tea drinking capabilities, so I just couldn't resist this stamp..........and it was so cheap.......
 The papers and stamp are Dovecraft, from the Me to You Mother's Day range; I stamped the image in London Fog Memento for a softer look, and coloured it in with Promarkers, I use Ice Greys for Tatty Teddy.  I used a Gold Spellbinders label die to cut out the image, inking the edge with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks.  The sentiment was fussy cut from one of the papers.
To add interest to the card blank, I embossed it with an floral Embossalicious folder, then inked it with the inks mentioned above, with the addition of Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.
The flowers were made with Woodware and Nellie Snellen punches, using paper from the same pack, and inking the edges with a variety of Distress Inks for a coordinated look.  I finished off by adding pink gems, and tying pretty, variegated eyelash fibre bows to the spines of the card.
