Feburary Bizzare and Unique Day

Hi there-

This month, my card was inspired by Polar Bear Day.  I am still enjoying so much my MFT Polar Bear Pals stamp set I got last year and only used it once before the flower season took over --which for me and my cards is practically year round.  I spent a day with this set, and created several cards - most of which have been already posted.  This one was my favorite of the bunch.

Lots of masking for the bears and the freehand iceberg, inking for the sky and copic coloring for the bears, ice and iceberg. The card took time, but I love the result.  The card is going to my long time bestie - we've known one another and have been friends since 1975 when my family moved to California and she and I ended up sitting together in craft class.  She always had more artistic flair than I did...but decades later I think I found my artistic niche.

Have a fabulous Day, and thank you so much for visiting.
