Frosty Polar Bear

It's the last challenge for 2018 at CAS Colours & Sketches!  This week is "chose a previous sketch" challenge and make it seasonal.  I chose #265.  I also decided to combine this challenge with this week's color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers - Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, and Highland Heather.
This Stamping Bella image is one I've been wanting to color for quite some time.  The colors seemed perfect for it.  I really would have liked to try this in Copics but because of time constraints I used the re-inkers and water colored the image.  I did add some grey for the mouse and bear along with the shadows.
The image called for sparkle so I used a Versamark pen and Heat 'n Stick powder along with some glitter to give a dusting of "snow" (or maybe sugar) to the berries, leaves and sprinkles.  I also added a few snowflake sequins and glued rhinestones to the center.  (Can you ever have too much bling?)
