A Mother's Love

Isn't this a beautiful scene? I've had it for some time now, but have just not done anything with it. I saw it on someone else's card this week, and I knew it was time for me to get mine done also. I purchased this gorgeous image at Prairie Fairy Designs.

The card is really fairly simple. I used nestibilitie to cut around the polar bears and then the matting. I colored the bears with Promarkers. (I threw a couple away before I could get it quite right - lol. It's still a little difficult for me to get the blending quite right on light colors where I don't have a harsh line that you can see where you stopped.) The paper is from my stash as are the snowflakes on the corners. The ribbon is topped by some dimentional fibers. I pop-dotted the bears off a second one, that I used stickles on for the glitter and shine. Thanks for looking.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - sketch

Craft Your Passion Challenges - monochromatic

Craft Your Days Away - texture (on the snowflakes and with the fiber and stickles

Scrap-Creations - anything

I hope you will take the time to stop by and leave a comment.

Hugs,

dj
