I love this set for a variety of reasons but one thing that I think is really neat is that if you stamp it on a vertical card base and crop out the Christmas tree it can work for any gift-giving occasion! As you can see I decided to go in a birthday direction with my bear! I stamped him onto watercolor cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed him with clear embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I taped the panel to a hard board and then watercolored him using my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors! I actually painted him while I was at a craft retreat a few weeks ago so this was an exercise in trying to paint/focus while talking, laughing, and just being distracted in general. Ha. As a result, some of it isn’t quite as smooth as I would have liked but again, it was good practice surrounded by ridiculously talented crafters who intimidate the bejeezus out of me! 😉 I am looking forward to coloring this stamp again this month during the coloring challenge and putting more of a holiday twist on it! 😉
