Neat & Tangled October Release, Day 2: Beary Merry

Day 2 is for Beary Merry, and its such a cute stamp set – here’s my card:

I created the background by stamping some of the smaller images from the set onto a watercolour panel, using black dye ink. I then trimmed it down and adhered it to a white card base.

I then stamped the large bear image from the set onto a piece of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then coloured him in with Distress Inks. It took some time, but I’m happy with the result.

Instead of using the co-ordinating dies, I fussy cut the bear out and set him aside. I wanted to create a snow bank for the bear to sit on so I roughly drew one on a piece of white cardstock, cut it out and sponged on some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to the top. I then stamped a sentiment onto the snow bank before foam mounting it to the card front.

The snow bank was perfect for the fussy-cut, Distress Ink’d bear when I foam mounted him to the card front too! To finish up, I added a couple of sequins.
