Beary Holiday's

He just looks like he's daring you to ring his bell LOL :)

I love how the swirl background stamp from Candy Kisses gave this little bear the arctic feel I was going for. I masked the crawling bear from Getting Grizzly before stamping the swirls so you'd get the feel that he was on an arctic cliff enjoying the view. Inking up the edges of every layer made each one stand out.
