Little Polar Bear

I'll just do a quick post for you today, again using those lovely Stamp Addicts stamps.  This time I choose the lovely Polar Bear, you'll find him here:

Polar Bear

I prepared my MDF with white gesso, then a blend of inks, I used blue, purple and green.  I then stamped my lovely Polar bear, and blasted it with the heat gun to set the ink in place:


I used acrylic paint to layer the white paint onto my polar bear.  I made a small mask of just the left side of my bear (a mask is when you stamp the bear onto a scrap piece of card, which you cut out and then put it over the stamped image.  This allows you to overstamp onto your image without ruining it).  I stamped my North Pole sign, slightly over my masked bear, so it looks like it is sitting behind the Polar Bear.

I also stamped the icicles, but this time I used versamark and snowy glitter embossing powder.

I added Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA onto the snowy ground, and the icicles - I like the shine and the texture you will get when this dries.

To finish, add glitter and a lovely piece of ribbon:
