Christmas Card Series Cards 3 & 4 - Ice skating Bear!


I have been working on these cards for a while and wanted to share them with you!

I used Polar Bears Pals by MFT: the ice skating bear.
I colored him using watercolor markers - I have been trying to learn how to use them. 
Still tricky though.

Card number 4 uses the same stamp, but I used my favorite coloring medium: COPICS
White NUVO Drops
Wink of Stella 
Star Stencil
Semi circle Crost stitched dies
Sizzix Christmas Embossing Folder
Stamp set: SU Christmas Classics - Merry Christmas
Distress Oxide ink: Fossilized Amber

I hope you love these cards!
More to come!
