Coloring With Distress Markers

Hello!

Today i have Christmas card that i just love!! I am entering it in Designed to Color Christmas/Winter Challenge. Its being sponsored by Penny Black, so i used a Penny Black image in my card today! I'm also posting this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!!

I started by die cutting an oval and stamping the Mimi & Bear image. I colored her with Distress Markers (which i love, by the way!! hehe) I also used some glitter glue for the holly and the white areas of her Santa hat.

For my card base i pulled out a PTI impression plate and ran it thru my Big Shot. Then i found a stripe pattern paper that matched my colored image (how that happened, i don;t know! ) I also found a vintage green button and with twine added to the stripe panel.

I cut a banner from a die and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in black ink. I adhered the panel and banner to my card base!

To add a little shading to the polar bear i used the black shoot marker on a clear block and a bit of water (just an easy tip when coloring with Distress Markers!). This way the polar bear isn't totally white or flat looking!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
