Wintry Scene

My first sponged scene!  I bought this stamp at Sparkle N Sprinkle in Florida last November while visiting my sister in Sarasota.  We took a class together in their tiny little front room and now I understand that they have expanded - I can't wait to go see their new space when I'm there at Christmas!  I think the name of the stamp is Paul Polar Bear.  I stamped and masked him and the snow part  and moon before sponging with SU Ballet Blue, Brocade Blue, and Night of Navy and Memento's Summer Sky, Danube Blue and Paris Dusk.  Then I stamped the little trees in the background with Night of Navy.  I then took all the masks off, tore another mask for the Ballet Blue sponging in the snow and stamped the sentiment (also Sparkle N Sprinkle).  Then I took a toothbrush and white ink to tap a little snow into the sky.  Lastly, I used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Brushable glue to cover the bear and sprinkled Twinkling Clouds (also Sparkle N Sprinkle) flocking.  I layered the scene on Glitter paper, SU Brocade Blue and Night of Navy.  It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be!
