Meadow Cottage Bears Blog Hop

Hi Everyone

Welcome to the Crafter's Companion Blog Hop Scavenger Hunt to celebrate the release of Meadow Cottage Bears, designed by Blackburn-born illustrator and figurative artist Christine Haworth! 

Today is the day the DT are sharing sneak peeks of Crafters Companion  new launch Meadow Cottage Bears..........  It is launching on Friday on Create and Craft as a Pick of the Week and remember what happened last time with a Crafters Companion/Christine Haworth collaboration.  It was paintbox popets and it sold out within 24 hours!!!!!!!!

Its a blog hop with a bit of a difference today and there is such a fab prize to be had by one lucky person.  Check out the information below the photograph of my sneak peak.

I've used the CD rom to make my first card in peach and green to match the Bear image.  I've printed the image onto watercolour card and the effect is really really soft and lovely.  The backing papers are from the new CD rom as too is the lovely little sentiment.  I've matted using coredinations and add 3 little pearls and some peach seam binding.  The pearls where plain white and i have added colour with my spectrum noir pens to match them perfectly with the colour of the card.  No fancy die cuts today all i have done is use the wave cut on my clever cut 5 in 1 trimmer.  Isn't the image stunning, these bears are so cute and Christine's artwork is amazing.

If you have landed here from Gemma's blog then you are hopping in the right direction. If not then you need to pop over the Crafters Companion News blog to begin.
