North Pole

Hi and welcome!  Today's challenge at Merry Monday is to use watercoloring on your card.  Don't be daunted - watercoloring can be as simple as swiping an inkpad onto an acrylic block and picking up the color with a brush to make a background on your card.


For my card, I decided to color up a new-to-me set from MFT Stamps called Cool Day.  I just love these polar bears :)



I stamped and colored the bear and his accessories with my Zig watercolor pens and then die-cut the images.  I cut a tag using Sea Glass cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted along the bottom.  I did a bit of stenciling on both the tag and the card base and finished off the tag with some lime twine to match his scarf and hat.



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the watercolored beauties created by the rest of the design team.

Products used:

Stamps:  Cool Day (MFT Stamps) Sweet Little Sentiments (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, Sea Glass (SSS), watercolor
Accessories:  Zig watercolor pens, Diagonal Stripes Stencil (MFT), Falling Snow stencil (SSS), embossing paste, twine

Cheers
Karren
