Bear Hug

Melanie's new stamp set arrived I had to play with it (to reward myself for the rubber cutting! ;-)).
I made this simple little card for my hubby, cause we all need a bear hug sometimes!... It took me a few tries to get the bears exactly the way I wanted and decide what to erase before stamping or what to mask.... The background is embossed vellum (through the Cuttlebug) over stripped paper, it's hard to see in the pic. I colored the bears with prismacolor pencils and my paint thinner. This is a technique I need to work on, but I like it so far. (I found a 50% off coupon for Michaels so I finally bought the coveted pencils! ;-))
