What a fabulous 5th day the instructors have given us! I love all of the cards!
I have two stamp sets with any animals in them. Wplus9 Happy Mail and Tim Holtz Crazy Birds. So I went with the cute little bear from the Happy Mail set. (Maybe I need to do some shopping?) ;)
I didn't have a santa hat stamp so....with much anxiety, I drew it myself!! Not bad I think! I also created a mask for the hat and bear to do the ink blending on the background.
I used the little stamp of snow from Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas tree to stamp repeatedly on the background with VersaMark before embossing with clear embossing powder. And then inked the background using Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and a bit of Blueprint Sketch.
I love Simon Says Stamp's Stitched Slopes and Hills dies! I used a couple of them to for the hill, popping up the top one with some foam tape. I die cut the snowflakes with Impression Obsession's tiny snowflakes.
It doesn't show in the photo, but I used clear Wink of Stella on the hat and snowflakes for a bit of sparkle!
Thanks so much for taking a look! Also thanks for your comments which are so nice to get!
