Today I have an altered item to share with you.
I found this wooden 'C' at Winners.  My friend who is a nurse just finished a course to become qualified to work in the dialysis was fraught with exams and a practicum. But she did it!!!! YAY!!!  So I wanted to get her a little something in celebration and of course it needed to be dressed up a bit.  What better way than with some Heartfelt Creations flowers!!

I used the Classic Rose stamp and die.  I clear embossed the flowers onto white cardstock.  I then added some coral ink and used my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the roses.

I wanted the leaves to be soft so I stamped them onto white cardstock and then distressed the edges with the same ink.

For the big rose I used all the same size flower.  I wanted a nice tight rose and I found the best way to achieve this was to use the same size flower.  As I got closer to the center I cut the flower in half so that is was easier to shape around the bud in the middle.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flower petals for just a hint of sparkle.  I also added Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops onto the leaves to simulate dew or rain drops.

I tucked in some springs from the Arianna Lace die set.

I like adding little details to my projects like this motif from the Arianna Lace die set.

Little did my friend know that when I was at her house for some crafting time, I was making these flower for HER!!

Teddy Bo & Co. Blowing Bubbles Card

Hello and welcome here!  It's my turn to share some Teddy Bo & Co. inspiration with you.  The image of Bea is from the August Membership pack.

 Card Size:  5" x 7"
I coloured Bea blowing bubbles with Prismacolor Pencils.  I finished the card off with Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die and the corners are from Cuttlebug.

I used Nuvo Crystal Clear drops to fill in the bubbles to make them shine like real bubbles would.

Prismacolor Pencils Used:
Fur - 1034, 943, 945, 1082, 947
Muzzle - 917, 1034, 1033
Overalls - 938, 956, 1008, 932, 132
Shirt - 1059, 1060, 1061
Hat - 938, 1014, 1018, 1017
Bubbles - 916, 912, 1040, 133, 993
Bottle - 912, 909
Ground - 1052
Sky - 1087

I took a few picture of the how I build up my layers.
The first layer I lightly colour in the highlights, the medium color and where the darkest colour will go.
 The second layer I lightly colour again, building on what I laid down the first time.  It's still easy to make adjustments to colour if necessary.

The third layer I again is about laying the colour down and blending the different browns together.  I didn't like how the highlight on the toe was turning out so I adjusted it by adding a bit of darker brown into it.  You can see the difference in the photo below.

The fourth layer is continuing adding colour, blending as you change colours.  I continued to add colour until I reach the darkest colour of each pencil crayon.
