Polar Bear Nights



Hi and welcome back to my crafty space.  Today kicks off a new challenge over at Pattie's Creations where the theme for the month is Bears.   I chose Pattieboops Holiday Polar Bear for my card as it is perfect for Christmas!  I printed the image twice, once on copy paper to use as a mask.  From there I blended distress oxides to create the perfect night sky, then I colored the image and foreground with copic markers.  I happen to love how the green and red scarf pop against the contrasting sky.   This card is a square 4.25 inch card so that it can fit inside a standard A2 envelope.  I did that so that it would not cost extra postage, like a square envelope does.  

When you have a minute please stop by Pattie's Creations store to check out her other images.  She has some pretty cute images getting ready to retire, so snatch them up while you can!!  


Products used:  white/silver metallic card stock, copic markers, distress oxide inks, Stamp On It Merry Christmas sticker, and Pattieboops Holiday Polar Bear
