The bear is back! And he brought the Christmas trees with him!
I used the same formula for stamping these scenes as I did when I stamped them on watercolor paper before. These three stamped on plain cardstock were colored with alcohol markers, though. I colored all of them at the same time until I was ready for the scarves. Blue for the bear and snow blended with a colorless blender, then the trees and ornaments. The noses and feet got a little cool gray.
For the first bear I gave him a scarf of yellow and orange. He was diecut and backed with a text paper of winter words. I added a strip of coordinating plaid and bordered everything with rust. I cut a couple of the words from the same background and used it as the sentiment.
The next bear's scarf was orange and green. this led to a green background and more of the rust bordering. I chose a dotted paper strip to echo the ornaments on the trees and added a gold peel-off greeting.
And then we get really chilly! With a two-toned purple neckscarf thish guy wanted some cooler colors for bordering and backing. I used some of the snowflake paper with purple borders and added just a small strip of green to pick up color from the trees. A clear sticker provides the sentiment.
All popped up on foam tape, these little bears look quite at home in the snow.
