Are you recovering from Christmas? Or maybe you are recovering from standing in return lines today! I hope you had a wonderful, joyous Christmas, no matter how you celebrated!
Are you ready to get back to your craft room for a little unwinding? Just Us Girls has a wonderful Inspiration Photo for us, this, the final week of 2014~
I was in need of a special Thank You card for a special little guy at school. The inspiration photo, combined with the fun new stamp set from MFT was the perfect fit.
I am linking this card up to Christmas Card Challenges #3- Inspiration Photo Penguin. Yes, I am aware that this is not a penguin! It does not have to be for their challenge, but the design of the inspiration photo inspired me and a polar bear is still an arctic critter!
I stamped the darling image and then masked it. Masked off the lower portion of the panel and sponged in the grey sky. Then masked off the sky and sponged in the water. Next, I used a home made circle template and added circles using white craft ink. I started large and worked my way down in size. The last circles were made just by pressing with an inked sponge dauber onto the background.
There is a bitty snowflake stamp in the MFT set- I stamped it a few times with a glue pad and then added glitter to the snowflakes.
The bear was stamped a second time, colored and then fussy cut out. He is popped up on dimensionals. The sentiment is heat embossed in white.
Simon Says Stamp's final challenge of the year is 'Anything Goes', so I am linking up there as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!
