CCMC #187 - Two Polar Bears

Hi Folks,
Today's post is for the Create With Connie and Mary Colour Challenge this week.  I was keen to do flowers but decided to use the Polar Bears from Stampin' Up's Zoo Review for something a little different and as most of the stamps have not been inked.  I masked the Polar Bears and sponged my ink around the card.  I gave the bears a wash of Sahara Sand with my Aqua Painter to give them some definition.  I embossed the mat panel with the Polka Dot EB Folder.  For the Finishing Touches I added some Dazzling Diamonds on the snow and the White Baker's Twine and Crystals.

This card was a Challenge Winner at Create With Connie and Mary this week.
