Merry & Bright Bears!

This card was inspired by Michelle Zindorf's "brayered sky tutorial" over on SCS which was featured in this week's SCS newsletter. I just loved the effect of her card and had to give it a go. The techniques used here are masking and brayering.

I wanted to make mine a snowy scene so fished out these cute Penny Black bears I have had for years. The tree stamps are also ones I have had for a very long time ... it always feels good getting out old stamps to play with ... sometimes they can get neglected with all the new and exciting stamps that come out all the time .... but the oldies still have their place too!


Recipe:
Stamps: Bears - Penny Black; Winter Forest - Posh; Trees - Art Impressions; Verse - Papertrey Ink
Papers: White; Black; Red
Other: Black Ink; So Saffron, More Mustard & Really Rust SU Inks; Brayer; White Gel Pen; Black Brads
