STAMPlorations January Theme & Photo Prompt Challenge

Welcome and Happy New Year crafty peeps!
I hope that you had a wonderful time over the holidays.

New month, new year, new decade, (WOW!), and the new challenge starts at
I used both for my card:

I adore this sweet little bear from the Romantic Expressions 2 stamp set.
I cut a heart shape, stamped and colored him. Then I stamped a second image for a mask.
Once the mask was in place, I sponged over the background with Peacock Feather DI,
splattered some water over it, then dabbed off. Once that was dry I took watered down
black and white paint and splattered some more using a toothbrush.
I removed the mask after that dried. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
I colored in some of the hearts with a red marker. All the hearts have a good 
coating of Wink of Stella on them for some subtle shimmer.

This bear is just too adorable!

I hope you find some time this month to play along at
We'd love to see your take on it. Plus there are prizes to
be had for some lucky players! All the details are on the main blog.
