Over at Just Cute Bears the challenge for this week is "Swirls and Bling". I'm using a Penny Black image called "Aiming to Please". With all the gifts he's carrying, someone is going to be very pleased, indeed!
I colored my image with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added some Stardust stickles to the package and the tree on the shopping bag. I added a little glitter under the bear's feet to look like snow. My background cardstock is embossed with snowflakes and swirls and I've added little pearls to the centers of the snowflakes. I used my Nestabilities to cut out and mat my image, and added some pretty red flowers, leaves, and pearl "bling" to the flowers. I used PTI's Mixed Messages for the sentiment and tied it onto my ribbon with a little piece of floss.
Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to check out the Just Cute Bears Challenge for more inspiration from the DT.
