Welcome to my little corner in the blogoshere (real word right?!) where I have settled in to share this crazy habit of mine that keeps me happy!

Boy oh boy did I have a good time with this card! It took me a while to get done, but I tried out some new techniques & had a ball doing it. This is my first Teddy Bo image, he is called "Land Ahoy"
The first new thing I tried was using the gamsol blending technique w/ my colored pencils. I used goo gone w/ my paper stumps & I did this for the water, the boat, sail & Teddy Bo (I used markers for his sweater & cap). The second new thing I tried was inking in the clouds w/ some chalk ink & a torn piece of paper (masking sweet Mr Teddy Bo to do so). Then I went back over the water w/ a sea foam green shimmery ink pad & also a light blue shimmery ink pad (both were Martha Stewart but I don't remember their names). I added glossy accent to his eyes & nose as well as the anchor. Used a navy blue ink to distress the edges. I also used my seam ripper to distress the edges of the kraft mat after I had inked on a little sand colored chalk ink to add dimension.
The dp is from my scrap pile, the tag & the sentiment are from a Hot off the Press pad, & I am not sure where the self sticky buttons are from.
