Teddy Bea Lantern

Hi bloggers, i've eventuslly finished my Teddy Bea altered lantern, it has taken quite a few days to do as i've altered it and then realtered it to just the way i like it. I have taken a few photos to show different stages. It was too hard to take a photo in the dark to show the candle as the flash just made everything too bright but i managed to take one which shows the orangey glow. So here they are!!

This pic shows the lantern after i've added the stamped and coloured images and before i have decorated the inside.

This one is the inside decorated with feathers and organza

This one shows the glow from the tealight inside
