Snowlar Bear

It’s a WINTER WONDERLAND over at Pear Tree Designs this week!There’s also something special going on too.As well as our sponsor The Character Cafe giving one lucky winner a $10 Gift Certificate to spend in their store there is also another prize up for grabs from the DT.It’s a Goody Bag full of crafty stash to say ‘Thank You’ to all our followers who’ve been joining us over the past year.

To play along and be in it to win it check the challenge blog for full details.Whilst you’re there why not draw some inspiration from the DT’s Festive creations!

I’ve used an Imaginisce Polar Bear stamp I bought for 99p!He’s still just as gorgeous as last year.Now,to cut down on time I tend to choose a style of card and mix it up a bit with colours/papers/stamps/embellies etc. So this wil be my signature card this Christmas.I also try to come up with a design that doesn’t use up too much DP or card but still has an interesting feature.This card has some Cuttlebug embossed acetate attached to the front (‘tho it doesn’t show too well).I’ve even made some other cards with embossed vellum too just to mix it a little further.There’s little waste as I’m stamping onto the piece of card I’ve trimmed off the base.I’ve coloured him with Promarkers,using the Blender on his body to blur any harsh lines and sat him on a snowy mound of, the aptly named,Polar White Flower Soft!

Image : Imaginisce Polar Expressions Collection Polar Bear
Sentiment :Imaginisce Polar Expressions Collection Merry & Bright
Mediums : Mementoย Dew Drops in Tuxedo Black and Paris Dusk,Promarkers,Polar White Flower Soft,Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Craft PVA glue,Inkssentials White Gel Penย (highlights on eyes and nose)
