Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Autumn Colours and a Blog Hop for Ready Teddy Go

 The October Challenge for Ready Teddy Go is Autumn Colours and it is Team Bear's turn for the Blog Hop.

All you need to do is leave a comment on each blog and be a follower of our Ready Teddy Go challenge to qualify for a chance to win this fantastic prize from The Hobby House.  I know the DT have had their eye on it and were wishing they could join in :)

Debbie (you are here!)

Right now onto this month's challenge

I put a small amount of gesso on some card and used a mix of zig art watercolour pens and distress inks to create the background. I used a ink splats stencil to put the green peeled paint DI on the top. I used black embossing powder for the the spider and bats (Tim Holtz).

I used Barry Spooky Bats which was kindly provided by our sponsors StampFairy.

Sentiment is from DigiStamp Boutique and I printed the image off onto digital paper - I coloured with promarkers and chalks but the paper gives the a slightly grainy appearance. I used black embossing powder on the die cut bats so they would be shiny.


Remember you must have a bear as the main image on your card to enter the challenge and any card that doesn't meet the criteria will be deleted from the list.

You can enter up to 4 times with different creations.

We are being sponsored this month by the fantastic  Stampfairy who are giving away a $10 voucher to spend in their online shop.

Hope you enjoy the blog hop!

I am entering this card into the following challenges;

Incy Wincy Designs - Halloween
Craft your Passion -  Embossing
Creative Craft Challenges - Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
