The main image is stamped onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. I used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip - use lighter shade to apply color to cardstock. As you lay the color on the cardstock, the color starts out as dark and a natural blending occurs as the marker returns to its lighter color. I dabbed the Blender into color to give some texture and make it look like fur.

I used Die'sire Decorative Dies - Elegance Stamping Frame set (which I ran through my eBosser) to cut out the bear and decorative frame. I left the bear in the frame and added a light shade of Memento ink pad london fog on the inside of the border. I then popped up the frame with Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles. The sentiment is from the Party Paws Christmas Cuddles set. I fussy cut it and adhered it to the sign. To add dimensional bling I added Stickles star dust to the white fur areas of his hat. NOTE: I used the UK sentiment version. The US version will have the US spelling.
