Yesterday, I needed to make a winter card because sooooo many of my friends are surrounded by ice and snow! For this card, I decided to flip a Bottomless Sea to make an icy border for the narwhals and the polar bear to meet. Bottomless Sea is very versatile and could be used as a spring canopy too. I will eventually make that card.

  First, I used our Blender Brushes to make the sea with several shades of Distress Oxide Inks. I let that dry and then treated it with an anti-static tool. I then stamped the main image of Bottomless Sea with Versamark Ink and used White embossing powder. For the sky I blended a bit of Squeezed Lemonade onto the panel and then spritzed it with Sheer Shimmer spray. I die cut a hill from a generic landscape border set. I popped the bottomless sea panel onto the sky panel.

 Meanwhile, when I returned from running errands lol - I colored my critters which I had stamped with PFS Hybrid Black ink. I used 2 narwhals from Be a Unicorn of The Sea with N0, N1, N3, and Copic Markers. For my polar bear from A Bear Kind of Winter I used W00, W1, W3 and a smidge (I always say that) of W5. I used R32 and R35 for the hat. Every critter got a coating of clear Wink of Stella! The sentiment is from A Gnome Winter. Y'all why use 1 stamp set when you can use 4???? I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I cut it into a banner and popped it on the card.

And I called it done because I want to get back to Spring lol - well until my friends are under another foot of snow lol!
