Color an Ice Fishing Pond – MFT Polar Bear Pals


Big thanks to MFT for providing this month’s release – I {bigpuffyheartlove} these polar bears!

Color an Ice Fishing Pond – MFT Polar Bear Pals

Birdie Brown is such a talented stamp designer – and she didn’t disappoint with these bears! I had wanted to make a video with her previous bears and didn’t get to…they had sold out too fast and I didn’t find them til spring! (I hope Polar Bear Pals are more available if you need ’em!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

How’s that for a fun holiday scene? Lots of critters could be sitting around an ice pond…penguins, walruses, or eskimossandy-allnock-ice-fishing-bears

I love using ALL the stamps when I color – so I used the skating bear on the inside…and as seen above, the little polar bear made his way onto the envelope!sandy-allnock-ice-fishing-pond-inside

Hope you enjoyed the video today! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you end up trying out one of my techniques, I’d love to see what you create!

  1. WOW Sandy. I really enjoyed your video and tips. What a fun scene.

  2. Oh I love this! I could watch you color anytime! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Sandy, I can sit here all day and watch your coloring!!! It’s like magic!! This card is fantastic!! I love how you added the sky and the shadows on the ice and around the little bucket and the bears. This is the 4 th video I have watched that you have done. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great week

  4. Oh my goodness, Sandy! This card is so stinking cute, and so of course I want/have to have this stamp set now like all the others I’ve bought because of you! Girl, you are killing me and my budget! Seriously! I do thank you so much for sharing all your talents. You inspire me always! 🙂 Your talents and generosity are truly amazing!

  5. This card is amazing! Cute bears, fantastic coloring.
    Also, it reminded me of the fun fact that polar bears are so well insulated that they give off practically no heat at all. Viewed with an infrared camera all you see is a puff of breath in front of it (and maybe parts of the face). Cool.

  6. Saving the video for a Sunday treat, but the card is adorable. Saw the safety pin icon–we are kindred spirits–bless you.

  7. Sensational coloring! LOVE those Seahawks colors too!!!

  8. Wonderful video! So many things to see with techniques and such. Thank you!

  9. I totally enjoyed the video (as I ALWAYS do! LOL) Learning so much from you …of course I have a long way to go but half the fun is the journey. Such a sweet card and I love your free handed’ backgrounds, they are amazing to watch coming together!

  10. Your coloring is just fantastic. Thanks for all your videos.

  11. Love watching you colour Sandy… are always informative and humourous, love, love, love! Fantastic card and that hole in the ice looks so real. Have a fabulous weekend. Cheers Donna Z 🙂

  12. Fabulous card and video! Can’t wait to try this! Thanks!

  13. The piece of me that can’t stop comparing is yelling “you’ll never be this good, just give up!’ But the encouraged by Sandy side is whispering “just try!” I’m choosing to listen to Sandy today. Thought you should know!! Thank you.

    1. I love this! I know I’m not as good as Sandy and probably won’t ever be, but I am so thrilled with my Copic marker coloring after learning so much from her online class. I’m getting better every day and I also just keep whispering “just try!” Long way to go but loving every step of the way. And oh my stars, this card is ABSOLUTELY beautiful!!!

  14. Sandy, while all your videos are fabulous, this one is my all time favorite. Love everything and how very helpful. I got this stamp from MFT yesterday and I am going to try to duplicate your technique. It is so wonderful. two thumbs and four paws way up!
    Hugs Myrna

  15. Cute bears. They made me think of the Coke bears. Love how you did the water. TFS

  16. So sweet! Thanks for the great video!

  17. oh, that we all could color as well as you. Love the colors you chose.

  18. I am in love with the color palette you chose for this card!

  19. This is going to be one of my favorite videos – there is so much information here about coloring furry critters, snow, ice, water, sky – holey buckets – of fish! Gonna have to get me some polar bears, but in the meantime, I’ll be sitting down with some penguins today and coloring a hole in the ice for them, just to see if I can pull it off. Love the idea of the “bumpy snow”, too – you really knocked it out of the park this morning! Thank you so much also, for adding the first chuckles of the day – it’s just so much FUN watching you work! Thank You!!!

  20. You never seem to cease to amaze me with your coloring. Great video.
