Polar Skater


Hi there!

After a busy morning running around doing errands I managed to sneak a couple of hours in the Craft Cave.  I made this card for three challenges - Merry Monday, CAS Colours & Sketches and The Colour Throwdown.  I inked up this MFT polar bear for the first time and coloured him with Copics.  He's skating along on MFT's Ride the Wave dies which I thought were perfect for the sketch!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!













Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Marina Mist, Brushed Silver) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bear from Polar Bear Pals) My Favourite Things, (Sentiment from Sentimental: Winter) Winnie & Walter
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Ride the Wave, Fishtail Flag) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (B93, B95, C1, C3) Copic
Glitter:  (clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

That wavy'rink' is fabulous, Jen. I can't believe you've not inked the polar bear up before but it's a good thing you did because you're the winner at Merry Monday. My two took second place. Yay for us and polar bears!
