Teddy Bo Tuesday.

It's here again, another Teddy Bo Tuesday, and once again Gayle has been slaving over a hot pencil and come up with some fabulous new images. Check them out below, I love, love, love the fairy tale images, although I haven't had a chance to play with them yet, Bea rocking the baby is soooo cute, and Bo in the hammock, well that's just typical Bo LOL!

This week I have used Bo in his Big Tie (TeddyBo-075). He is coloured in photoshop as usual and I have paper pieced his jumper and tie with papers from Nitwits Eerie-sistable Collection, in fact all the papers I have used on the card come from the same collection. I also added some digital stitching around the patterned squares and some purple glitter dots around the card, (wouldn't really be a Colette card without glitter now would it?!) I made some ties from the papers and used them on the insert, I also added a verse that I found somewhere on the net a while ago, not sure where now.

Don't forget you still have until Sunday midnight to enter the Teddy Bo Easel card challenge, and for any Teddy Bo fans out there (and anyone else LOL!) check out my blog candy post here.

Lovely colouring Colette - I don't know how you do it!? When you mentioned you were using all the different papers I wasn't sure how it would work, but it looks great, it all just goes together beautifully! I know I say this a lot, but I LOVE your inserts, it is like two cards in one!
