Teddy Bea's been Mugged!!!!!

It's Tuesday again and that means new Teddy Bo and Bea images in store, look out for the pre-coloured images, ideal for making a quick card (or if you are not a colourer in-er LOL!), and beautifully coloured by FairyD, along with a great selection of new digi stamps.

For my mug I have used one of last weeks new Zodiac releases, Teddy Bea Taurus, coloured in photoshop, and a great Letraset product called Safmat.
*Blurb below taken from the Letraset site*
An acid free, self-adhesive, transparent film for use with your desktop printer.
Safmat film is virtually invisible when applied, so only your printed text or image can be seen!
Suitable for Inkjet printers or black and white Laser printers

You print on it just as you would normally, then cut around the image and peel the backing paper away and it sticks to whatever surface you apply it to. It is brilliant for getting images or wording onto items that won't go through you printer, thick card for example, and I am going to give it a go on acetate, as once applied I think you would be able to see the image from both sides.

I have applied Bea to a really cheap white mug, bought at Asda, and added Taurus personality traits to the back of the mug, obviously it can only be used for decoration as the images aren't heat set on the mug or anything, but I love it so much I am thinking of getting it made properly by one of those places that personalise mugs and stuff (Taurus is my star sign).

There is still time to enter the Teddy Bo challenge, you have until Sunday to get your entry in, so snap up one of the fab new images and get creating!

I am going to enter my mug into these challenges.
