Oops Oliver Bear in a Winter Wonderland

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Well Christmas in July has been a fun one, but has gone by too fast as usual!

For my final Christmas card post for this month, I am excited to share this cute image with you...
This is Oops Oliver Bear (S050) and Winter Wonderland Background (U013).  Such an adorable and fun image!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and background (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were added on Oliver's nose and skate blades.  Once this was all dry, I proceeded to fussy cut out the main image. The background was coloured using Distress Ink Pads with the ink blending tool applicator for the sky and ice pond.  Frosted Lace Stickles were applied to the background on the snowflakes, trees and snow hill to add some sparkle.

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Real Red cardstock.  To adhere Oliver on the card, foam tape was applied to help make him pop out a bit.  To complete this card, a piece of Doodlebug Twine was tied in a bow near the top of the card.
