Another Bear

Afternoon all.  Just popping by quickly with another bear card to share with you:

Another first for me - a side stepper card, and made without a safety net or a template, just a lot of guesswork and a trail of failed attempts in the bin!
I have made myself a very simple template for this so if anyone would like a copy just email me and I will whizz one over to you - this card is 6x5 but you can adjust the width easily
So, LOTV James Bear: Snow Angel
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are an old pad - DCWV Christmas Stack
Sentiment is Personal Impressions
Tag is a Whimsy die
Snowflake is a Spellbinders die
Pearl brads are from stash
Additionals: Viva Pearl Pen and Glamour Dust

Dammit, that bear is handsome.
Oh, if anyone is wondering about the colour of his coat - it's Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean that I mixed in the palette.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

ROLF - you do make me smile Squirrel :) I think I probably do something similar to you coz I end up stuff in the bin with trial and error. I had a red pen explosion yesterday - looked like I'd had a nose bleed :) so my freshly stamped image had to go in the bin. Have a good day x

What a sweet wintery side step high stepping card! I'm impressed that you figured this out on your own. It's not that I doubt you but dang, that couldn't have been easy.
