I started by stamping the sentiment in Versafine and heat embossing with clear powder. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the image and stamped it directly on the card using the sentiment to ground the bear. I then lightly stencilled a music pattern around the bear - echoing the musical sentiment. I stamped the image again on water colour card, coloured him with Zig Real Brushes and some copics. I added a touch of sparkle to his hat, scarf and the gift. I edged the image with a black marker and then attached it to the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a simple greeting to the white panel. And the bear is peeking in at the bottom too!
Finishing this card brings my Christmas card total to 97 - I'm getting there. That's all for now - I really have to make a start on some housework!! See you soon.
