Just Floatin' by to say Hi!

Helloooooo, still on my holidays, so this is a scheduled post, welcome to another Teddy Bo Tuesday and I hope it finds you all well
You still have until Sunday 12th June to enter our Shaped Cards challenge and DT call, so if you haven't done it yet you need to get a wriggle on.

For this week's card I have used a Sepia version of Bo, happily floating along tied to a balloon. I lightly coloured him using Photoshop, and used Nitwit papers from the Bundle of Joy kit to make up the easel card. I made the cloud shape in Photoshop and filled it with one of the papers, then added some shading to give it a bit of a fluffy look. Bo's balloon is attached to the card with an Action Wobble (a kind of springy thing) which makes him wobble about each time he is knocked or you move the card, it looks fab in real life, unfortunately you just can't see it in a photo. Ribbon from MeiFlower and buttons from stash.

There are lots of gorgeous new images in store including Ballerina Bea, she's soooo cute, so make sure you go over there and check them all out, and head over to the challenge blog to see some fabulous inspiration from my teamies.

Hi what a great idea with the balloon. The cloud and sentiment are so cleverly done. Kitty :D

Hi Colette, I really love this card.
Teddybo is so cute.
Love the way you coloured him. I must try this colouring in photoshop. Looks great. Hope to find some tips and trics on youtube.

Having seen this card 'in the flesh' (I am lucky enough to be one of Colette's friends) I can say I have never seen such a fab wobble on a card. This Teddy Bo image is just perfect for this card. Colette you continue to amaze me. xx
