Teddy Stampers # back to school

Hi lovely blogging ya doing,

Another back to school project this time for our challenge over at Teddy Stampers.
We would love you to join in the fun with our 'back to school' theme.
Don't forget you must have a stamped or digi stamp bear on your project.

This is my DT creation a bookmark.
The cutie bear is a digi image from Di's digi downlods     ..... check out Di's freebies
 copics used bear, apple and book R00 R20 R22 R24 E30
G20 G21 pencil and book E30 E33 E35 and a white souffle sakura pen for highlights.
Paper is from a 'Love pack' from Papermania and black card and bazzill from my stash.
The cord from Hobbycraft started out beige and I coloured it with R22 copic
Beads and dome stickers are from my stash. I've had them for so long I can't remember where I got them,
The beads were already coloured.

I also made a backpack to match.

You can download the template and tutorial Here cute eh!!
I had a play with shrink plastic, don't ya just love it... great fun!!!!
It didn't work printing a large image on the computer although I had read on someones blog that you can do it. 
The ink was getting onto the copic marker ARRRAH.
So I traced my original image onto frosted shrink plastic with a pen from Stampin' Up and coloured it with pencils, the colour gets stronger when it's heated.
If you leave a small border around your image you can add a hole before you heat it.
Next time I think i'll use thinner card for the backpack as the bazzill's a bit too stiff.

Hope you'll join in the fun, thanks for stopping by.

Love cherie   //*.*\\
