Ho ho hello! If I was going to get my monthly Christmas card done it had to be less involved than some of the cards I've been making lately, so I just watercolored and stitched onto a mat which was then adhered to a designer paper-covered card front. This 2010 Whipper Snapper Bear'ing Gifts was next on my list. Love him. So cute and friendly... and generous!
Honestly, when I purged and redesigned my stamp room I had in mind to spend more time coloring in front of the big window and less time on the other side of the room designing the card, which takes as much time as coloring, yet old habits are hard to break. And, let's face it, it can be a lot of fun. Just depends upon my mood. My options are open as I kept plenty of supplies for both coloring and designing. But, I digress... rambling again.
I added glitter and some white gel pen accents and an old PSX sentiment which seemed right for my jolly fellow. Tombow markers were used for watercoloring on Arches 140 lb hot press watercolor paper.
Hope he makes you smile. Have a happy day!
