Ballerina Teddy


Well, I am either late posting today or early for tomorrow.  I want to think in a positive way and say that I am posting early for Wednesday.  I have a list a mile long this week to try and get done and sneaking in some creative time has not been easy.  I have actually had this image, "Ballerina Teddy" by Whimsy and Stars Studio colored up for about a week now and waiting to decide on which DP to use.  I finally decided on a pattern from the Songbird Collection by My Mind's Eye (floral), Amber Autumn Collection by DCWV (embossed red) and Spook Tacular Collection by K & Company (orange/red polka dots).  I am really liking the red, orange and yellow color combo.  It feels very festive to me.  I added some glitter to the ruffles on the skirt and the star wand.  I cut out one of the flowers from the DP and added a felt button to the center and used it an an embellishment.  I even added some gemstones to the tips of the crown.  I don't seem to use my hoarded gemstone quite enough :(

If you like Mabelle's designs...you have another day or two to pick up a free one here on FB.

I sure am going to miss working as a designer with Mabelle's images, as this is my last month on the Whimsy and Stars Guest Design Team.  You can be sure that I will continue to create with her adorable images :)
