I figured making a card for a challenge was the best way to get back into creating on a regular basis. Using a new die set by Recollections (found on sale at Michaels) and a new stamp set from The Cat’s Pajamas I first cut the border piece and used the center shape to stamp the image. I coloured the water, the gift and the scarf with InkTense pencils then added some Nuvo Crystal drops to the bears nose, eye and water hole. I also added some snow lines, to ground the bear, with a Sakura pen and went over that with the drops too. The bear himself has been done with a white Sakura glaze pen so he has dimension but the camera didn’t pick up on that texture. I added the die cut and image pieces to the blue background piece and then added that to the white CS. Using a scrap piece of the same blue I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed in white.
