Whipper Snapper Polar Bear Christmas

Happy Saturday, Everyone!! You have to admit this polar bear is so darn cute. So cute you just want to hug him. His name is "Mike". . .:) The stamp is by Whipper Snapper " called "Bundle up Mike" that I bought from Jen of "Pieces of Me" online store "Little C's Stamp n' Things". I bought a few Whipper Snapper stamp from her store and I am so in love with them.


Do you ever wonder why I post so many photos of my card? No, it's not because I'm in love with my card. LOL!! I tend to write a lot on my posts and it sort of give my writing a flow and to keep things interesting, I post extra pictures rather than just have paragraphs of my rambling on. I mean who wants to see just a bunch of words, right? The photos also help you see the card in different angles.

Anyway. . .I colored the image with my Copic Markers and sort of shaded parts of the image using SU Pastels. Pastels are so under rated. I rarely see anyone using them now a days. It's actually a very good color medium and one of the most economical. I
It's a great medium to color parts of images, especially when you just want subtle coloring. It's also great when you want to transition a bold color to a lighter shade. It's great for back ground coloring too!



Well, I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend. Tomorrow will be a busy day again. Hopefully, I can fit some time to craft.

Love this, Maria! I just bought this stamp from Jen too! Can't wait until he arrives. :0)

I use pastels sometimes too. Mostly for 'inking' the edges of my cardstock. I like it better than ink...much softer look. I will have to try doing backgrounds with it. I really like how you did the blue around Mike. :0)
