30 Day Coloring Challenge

 

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Today is the FIRST day of a THREE DAY blog hop to jumpstart your creativity. If you’re new to the coloring challenge or have any questions about the coloring challenge you can refer to this post : http://www.thedailymarker.com/2016/10/coloring-challenge-bring-it-on/

I colored this adorable polar bear for Day 1 of the challenge. Let's take a look and then get into the details.
I used the polar bear from the Cool Day stamp set from My Favorite Things and gave him some color with Copics. I did some quick Distress Ink blending in Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire and white heat embossed the snowflakes from the Snowflake Flurry stamp set from MFT. I die cut the ink blended panel using the Cross Stitch Rectangle dies from MFT, added foam tape behind and panel and set it aside. I stamped more snowflakes onto the card base in Soft Lilac and Sea Glass inks from Altenew. I adhered the ink blended panel to the card base and added the beautiful Christmas Blessings sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

  87. I love the sentiment in silver. A teacher in one of my preschool classrooms where I was subbing gave me roll or 2 of this shiny silver paper. It's sticky backed and you can see yourself in it. I don't know where she got it but they laid it down on the floor so the kids could pretend to ice skate. If I had a die cutter I would love to use it for a sentiment on a card like you did.
    That bear looks a little lonely. He can come to my house and I will be his friend! LOL The coloring on his scarf is so nice and I see his is a patriotic bear to boot. Go USA! LOL The snowflakes are so pretty and I like the colors you used and the fact that you did embossing. It's a great card all around. If you didn't put that sentiment on the card, that could just as easily be a winter card because there is nothing Christmas about the card really. Snow happens in the winter and where I live in CT snow happens (about an inch) a week or 2 ago and it's not winter yet.
