Candles & Tiles using Decal Papers...

Good morning lovely peeps...

Just a quick update before I go to work...

Well, it Friday again...HOORAH...and it's all happening at Teddy Bo Towers...catch up with all the gossip and latest news and releases from the bears...and join along with the latest Teddy Bo Tuesday Challenge #15 'Alter Something' for the next two weeks finishing at MIDNIGHT UK time on Sunday 7th August.

Here is my inspiration for you...using decal waterslide paper for inkjet printers, using the delightful bears...'Sugar Plum Fairy' Teddy Bo_112 & 'Your wish will come true' TeddyBea_116...

For the ‘ALTER SOMETHING’ Challenge I have used some left over tiles from a bathroom job I ‘helped with’ a while back and made some coasters inspired by Collette’s mug from ages ago :) Thanks Collette hun!! xx Check out Colette's fabby blog here for more stunning inspirationxx

Any hoo, I coloured in the 'ikle bears with Prisma pencils, scanned them and resized to print them out onto decal waterslide paper...

…then sprayed with clear acrylic spray paint to seal the images (smells just like nail varnish) so when immersed in water, the ink will not bleed. Soaked the transfers in water until the transparent film came away from the backing paper and careful dabbed them on to the tiles.

Also added some stamped hearts and then sealed again with the acrylic spray. On the back of the coasters, I added some sticky backed felt pads…Volia!!

I did the same for the tealights using 'Sunflower Bea' TeddyBea_114...once I had sprayed with acrylic spray and left to dry, I cut out the little circles, soaked them and then placed them carefully onto the tealights...simples!!

For more inspiration, please pop on over to the Teddy Bo Tuesday Challenge #15 'Alter Something' as Team B have some amazing projects to share with you.
