Quirky Crafts Challenge..and Trimmie Craft Challenge

I am entering this into the CRAFT challenge too - their challenge this week is RED.. :) :)

As  you know I (The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs) is sponsoring Quirky Crafts for their fortnightly challenges this month.   Their new challenge is out today which is  Teddy Bears - any crafty project is suitable as long as you have a bear on it.  A nice easy one to join in with eh?
The DT members have some lovely inspiration for you - pop over and check it out...HERE

There are 2 Crafty Pad stamps to be won. :) :)

They kindly asked me to do GDT again and this is what I came up with......

An altered mini dart board cover - all will be revealed as you scroll

It is a mini tutorial if you fancy giving it a go :-

I have used this mini wooden dart board cover - but
you could use a small box or tin.

I used Tim Holtz alcohol ink - Pool Blue
to dab over all over the wood.

This is the effect it gave

Create the wording on the PC as shown in the picture below -
I used natural coloured card for this.
Using the Ted - Hugs stamp or digi download (from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs)
Colour as preferred.
Cut 3 pieces of ribbed card to the size you require
to cover your surfaces and adhere your image,
and wording onto 2 of them.
Cut another smaller piece to suit the size of you sentiment and adhere.

Now adhere all the elements as shown below.
I have added red heart shaped brads and
also silver mirri card punched hearts.
I also used Anita's 3D gloss to the word 'HUGS' on Ted.

That is it - now you have some 'HUGS'
you can give to someone for them to keep
and use as they need

Thanks for looking - I do hope it is an easy
to follow tutorial and would love to hear
what you think of it. :) :)
