First thing that came to my mind when I purchased this north pole cutie, was white powder - embossing powder.
Unfortunately, some things look better in my head than they do translated on paper, LOL.
Yes, I embossed the entire image in white embossing powder. The plan was to make it stand out by watercolouring a lovely blue sky around the bear. How else would we see the white embossing on white watercolour paper? HOWEVER... reality looked quite different. Despite a deep blue around him, the bear's face seemed lost. I tried to colour his eyes, the snout and mouth with Copics as well as Sharpie pens, which made things worse. But I really like the sweater and scarf embossed in white, so I had no choice but to cut the bear apart.
After I stamped the bear in black (using Memories ink on Beckett Expressions card stock) I was much happier. I paperpieced the clothes that were previously embossed, watercoloured and cut out. The white paper was matted with blue and eggplant(which looks black in my scan), then adhered to a white card, and voilà my G.Q. bear is ready for winter.
