A 4" Square Fat Page

Morning and I have two DT posts today and the second one is for the Furry Friends challenge at Unicorn.
I got out out all my animal stamps and actually stamped a few but nothing gelled.Then I found a topper I made last year but didn't do anything with and I had a eureka moment.The background was a dirty pour run off and I had put a decouped teddy image on the side-sooo made a little tag -crumpled a postcard from Graphic 45 plus the little stamp and May strip to ground the bear.
String on the tag-distressed all edges and used my long forgotten gilding polish -luckily not dried out-some sparkle on the pinafore and I made a 4" square Fat Page everything onto a base of greyboard-may even make this into card if suitable occasion.

I love hearing how some projects come together, this is gorgeous and has such a vintage feel to it. I often sit at my desk looking at what I have around me with no inspiration at all but once the first piece has been started then the creative juices start to flow and it all comes together in the end.

Woo-hoo Carol, way to go. That cute little teddy bear has really pulled all the elements together, really inspired work. Love all of the layers and texures (the dirty pour almost looks like another bear - or at least a face).
