Toffee Bear Topper

Hi folks.

Another wet and dreary day here in not so Bonny Scotland! LOL

Today I have a little Topper for you. It is a very simple affair, as I don't like to be too fussy with my Toppers. This is for the Sophisticat Challenge.

I have followed the theme at Pink Elephant which this week is to use Plaid and Brads, but NO ribbon! Difficult I know, as I like ribbon on my Toppers. It just adds that little flourish, but hey, not allowed for this one!

I have used a red Tartan for the 'Plaid' part, and three white snowflake brads. All from the stash. The cute Bears are from a Tinker & Co set named Mr & Mrs Santa. Not sure if it is still available, as I got it last year. I have printed these out and layered with foam pads. No colouring necessary, as all their kits come ready coloured - how cool is that!

I have dotted some dimension paint round the edges, and put some glittery paint on the white bits on the coats. So there you have it - simple!

Your highlighting on your diecuts is very nice. Noticed it first on the penguins feet.
