Diamonds are a Bear's Best Friend!


I'm busy working on making some refrigerator magnets for a November craft show. I made this one from a 4 x 4 chipboard coaster covered with designer paper. This precious teddy is a digital image from Mini Bears & Birds by Angels Landing. After finding this fun quote from the legendary Mae West, I just had to add lots of bling for this sweet bear!!

The bear was printed on white Georgia Pacific card stock and colored with Prismacolor Pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits. I created the hair bow with mauve tulle and the necklace with silver cording. Crystals were added for the bow, necklace, and bracelet.



The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with a Labels 2 Nestability die cut. I sponged the edges with Regal Rose and matted it closely with Regal Rose card stock. A row of crystals was added to emphasize the quote!!

I attached a row of tatted lace across the bottom of the coaster before mounting the cut out bear on layered dimensionals.

  7. Such a cute idea, Lynn, to add all those sparkly jewels and to keep them in perfect scale with the bear image. The tatted lace looks terrific with that designer paper -- gorgeous accent.
