The Presents Bear image was stamped on Hammermill smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black ink. After coloring the image with Copic markers (see list below), I cut it out using the coordinating dies. The background layers were cut from white cardstock using the Infinity Rectangle Dies by Hero Arts and I added a bit of design paper as an accent. I added one of the sentiments from the Knitting Bear stamp set using Versafine Ink in Onyx Black.
Check out all the crafty inspiration from my friends at Colorado Craft Company!
