Penny Black - Loads of Cheer

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing another new image, this is from the Loads of Cheer (30-920) stamp set.  This stamp set is from the Christmas release from Penny Black.

I stamped the image in black ink and heat embossed in clear.  I watercoloured the sweet bear and tree and added a bit of colour at the bottom to ground the image.  I added gold glitz glitter gel to the stars to give them some sparkle, as well as red glitz glitter gel to the ornaments on the tree.  Snow glitter paste was used to add even more sparkle and texture to the bear's hat cuff and pompom.

To finish, I stamped a sentiment from the Penny Black Shine Upon You (30-938) stamp set.  I thought the message was perfect to go with this adorable bear. :)

Close-up ...
I'm sending this card to the Christmas Kickstart #68 Challenge - Trees, Trees, Trees!

And entering into PB Saturday November Challenge - second entry ...
And, last, but definitely not least, I'm sending this over to NBUS Challenge #44! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
