MFT RELEASE DAY - NOVEMBER 2017

Well, the day you have all been waiting for has finally arrived.
To celebrate the launch I created this fun scene with a Ski-Jumping Bear!


The adorable little bear is from the new Ski-sons Greetings stamp set and Die-Namics.  I opted to stamp him in Hybrid Cement Grey ink, enabling me to use the no-lines technique, giving a softer look to the image.  As you can see, I gave him a stripy scarf and added texture to his sweater as well as giving him fuzzy fur (my students will recognise these techniques)

Colouring the background was so much fun.  I first cut out a piece of Copic suitable card with a Stitched Square die.  Then, having Googled for images of snow scenes, I picked one that inspired me to draw and colour my own upon which to have my bear flying down the slopes.  I used a Picket Fence Distress Marker to add the snow to the pine trees, ensuring that I had finished my Copic colouring first.  

To add dimension and a little comedy to my card I attached my die cut bear to the card with a mini wobble spring.
