I decided to celebrate my top 3 win by crafting, so perused the challenge blogs, and ended up on the current Dragonsdream Challenge. I do love this blog.
The challenge this fortnight is Magical mystery, and the recipe needed to include magic, a little mystery and a sprinkling of fairy dust.. After pondering a while, an idea popped into my furry head.
First I needed to do some @copyright bears' special stamping techniques..
Then I cut my images, do you realise how difficult it is to use scissors with paws? Not to mention paws with gloves on!
Can you guess where my furry brain was headed yet?
I found this glue pen in our supplies, it was perfect for picking out the fine detail in my star stamps,
I added some glitter to the glued stars to comply with the fairy dust element of the challenge. so far so grungy for the background, my current style seems to lean towards grunge whether I want it to or not.
I coloured my images on top of Wilbear's TV listings magazine! Well he moans if the inks leak through to the desk so I needed to use something to soak up the excess.
My finished tag, I'm not sure what happened to my grunge style, it somehow cutesified itself as I created!
My idea was that the girl sees a shooting star, and wishes upon it for her frog to turn into a handsome prince. Does he magically change? Well, that's the mystery element, as I'm not telling you. ;)
Don't forget the bears have two current competitons
A super-duper-get-excited-prize Guess How Many Bears competition, which closes on Sunday. Still plenty of time to add your guess to the list.
and our monthly literary based Compoohtition which runs until the end of the month.
With love from the bears.
