CASology Challenge - North


Hi there, blog friends ~ I've been nursing a 'Stye' (in my good eye) so this will be a quick post. I always enjoy playing along with CASology, so I hope my ice skating polar bear fits the bill for this week's cue ~


 That's what polar bears do in the north pole, right? Everything on this card is from MFT except for the snowflakes. I colored the bear with Copics and used Stickles on the icebergs for sparkle...the ice pond was created with a shadow die and shaded with distress inks.

Did you notice my new gorgeous 'backdrop'? My special thanks to Loll...I really love it!!!

Have a great weekend, everyone ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Polar Bear Pals; WPlus9 - Iconic Christmas (snowflakes)
Dies: MFT - Polar Bear Pals,, Hit the Slopes, Oval Shadow, Icebergs
Misc: Copic Markers; Stickles - Star Dust; Tim Holtz -  Peacock Feathers

Well, when they're not snow-boarding, that is exactly what they do!! I love the look in his eye, and your stickled icebergs, Barb... but not this eye problem! You're my second friend this month with one!!
Take care, my friend! xx

So sorry to hear about your eye. Hope you are better soon. Your polar bear is simply perfect. Love how you made his cute little skating pond, and those icebergs look wonderful coated with stickles and hanging behind that stitched landscape. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
