Wild Thing Valentine

Can this Gerda Steiner Bear be any CUTER... I think NOT !!   I printed the Valentine's Bear out three times on PTI card stock.  It was also printed a fourth time on my card base.  I colored the bear using Copic markers and used the Pointillism technique for extra detail.  The bear was fussy cut and I used the paper tole method to add layers. An Action Wobble was also added for movement.  I die cut a rectangle to use as a stencil and I also diecut a MFT Polka Dot Cover-up Die-namics to use over the negative of the rectangle. It was centered over my card base where I needed it and the hearts were stamped inside of the cut circles. I originally was going to just use the polka dots as a stencil but thought the hearts were more appropriate since it is Valentine's Day.  :)    I cut apart a misc Wild Thing sentiment and used part of it on the front. The pieces were lined up again using my Misti and re-stamped for my inside sentiment.
