Christmas Ted ...

Finally managed to photograph some of my latest creations so here is the first, as promised. Love LOTV, who doesn't & I have too many of their stamps to mention!!!! Seeing as he is in the snow I thought I would colour him in grey (just like everyones favourite Tatty ted). Also I thought this backing paper reminded me of a lovely homemade knitted jumper and hey presto a perfect combination. I couldn't lay my hands on a quickie glue pen when I glittered the snowflakes so used an alternative but I was disappointed that the glue remained blue, not the look I had planned but upon reflection I think it is what us crafters call 'a happy accident' don't you think?
Well onto the ingredients, stamp obviously LOTV, snowflakes are punched using good old Martha Stewart plus ultra fine glitter and that glue pen, finished with some Anitas gems. The ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts (fab suppliers) faux stitching this time plus a button from my collection. The sentiment is CG. Finally that fabulous paper is from Dovecraft and from a 6x6 pad called 'Contemporary Christmas'. UPDATE - Forgot to mention the fluffy stuff on Teds hat, I used Liquid Applique, you just squeeze it on and then heat it up. Had this product for must be over ten years but always comes out especially at Christmas.
Thanks for popping by and I be back to post another version of this gorgeous teddy in the coming days.
Take care, keep warm, Jane x
