The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge


The Songs & Rhymes Challenge theme is based on this song:

Find inspiration in the Song: Teddy Bear Picnic
If you go down in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise!
For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain
Because today's the day the
Teddy Bears have their picnic

For my card I used an image from the retired Stampin Up set Button Bear stamped onto watercolor paper and watercolored using distress inks and an aqua brush.  The honey pot was fussy cut and popped up using a dimensional.

We hope you'll share your cards/projects using the Teddy Bear Picnic them with us at The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge.

The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge


This week's Songs & Rhymes Challenge theme is from this song:
Song of the Lavender fairy 
from Flower Fairies of the Garden book by Cicely Mary Barker
"Lavender's blue, diddle diddle" - So goes the song; All round her bush, diddle diddle,
Butterflies throng; (They love her well, diddle diddle, So do the bees;)
While she herself, diddle diddle, Sways in the breeze
"Lavender's blue, diddle diddle, Lavender's green"; She'll scent the clothes, diddle diddle,
Put away clean - Clean from the wash, diddle diddle, Hanky and sheet;
Lavender's spikes, diddle diddle, Make them all sweet!
(The word "blue" was often used in old days where we should say "purple" or "mauve")

For my card, I used the retired Stampin Up set Fairies.  Stamped the image using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and colored using Nuvo Watercolor Pencils and an aquabrush.  I embellished with sequins.

We hope you'll share your cards/projects using this week's theme as inspiration.  The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge found HERE.
