Teddi and Friend - TIO"T" Day #78

Our challenge this week on the Follow Your Heart Blog was to use an animal. I got a two for one with Teddi and Friend from the Hearts and Hugs Summer collection by Victoria Case exclusively for SCACD.

My favorite thing about this image is the way his tummy is the shape of a heart. It is all about the tiny details.

After stamping the image with Momento ink, so it won't run, and coloring it with my markers I put the card together using some of my favorite embellishments from SCACD.

The "brad" on the ribbon is actually created with the cream Pearl Pen from Viva Decor. It is SO much easier to just make my own brad and have it be whatever size I want right on the spot. No making a hole or worrying about the fold over part of the brad being visible inside the card. LOVE IT!

The butterfly is one of the Maya Road chipboard elements. I love that this set comes with both the open and solid shapes. They can be used together or seperately! For this one I used my finger to apply a couple of colors of acrylic paint to the chipboard. Once it was dry, I outlined the chipboard with a marker and then added some bling with the Viva Decor Glitter Liner in hologram. Viva me baby!

Be sure you stop by the store blog so you can see what the rest of the Design Team created. They are one extremely talented group of ladies and you do not want to miss it!
