Christmas bear

Sometimes inspiration just doesn't come, and I have lots more Christmas cards to make this year still.  As a result, I thought I would copy one I did last year.  Previously, this was an easel card, but this version is a straightforward 6 x 6 plain card.

I used distress inks to colour the hills, using my cut and dry foam to apply the ink.  I've forgotten which company made the bear stamp (I really need to make sure things are labelled and stored correctly) but it was coloured using the distress ink to provide shadow and promarkers for the blue bands, then topped with glossy accent.  The icy touches (and snow) were done with a quickie glue pen and some clear glamour dust.

I would like to enter this card into the Bear challenge (week 124) at Allsorts challenge
