Frosty


I received these fun Cat's Pajamas stamps today. I stamped this cute fishing polar bear then coloured him in with various blue markers. I added a bit of shading to his body with a grey marker. The 10% grey prismacolor markers work perfectly for adding that little something extra, that pop, to something that's supposed to white. The piece of paper on here that looks like patterned paper is actually a piece of vellum stamped with various dotted flourishes. I attached it to the ballet blue piece with bashful blue brads. I find that when I have images that take more time to colour, I veer away from busier cards. I guess I just don't want anything to take away from the image that I spent all that time on, you know?
