A Trifecta of MFT Challenges

Cue the Olympic Fanfare music!  This bear is joining in on the winter themed MFT 2018 Creative Olympics Event #2 - Freestyle.  It's quite a thrill that, in the process, he gets to join both MFT's Color Challenge and Sketch Challenge!

White pigment ink was stenciled onto black card stock to create the background.  This polar pal was colored with Copics and a white gel pen and popped up on foam adhesive to give him a natural shadow on the snow.

Dies:  MFT Big Thanks, MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 4, MFT Single Stitched Rounded Rectangle
Stencils:  MFT Drifts and Hills, MFT Snowfall
Paper:  MFT Ripe Raspberry
Copics: C00,0,1,2,3,5, RV000,00,02,04,06,09,52,55
