Throwdown a Challenge... (or two)

Colours from this weeks Colour Throwdown Challenge reminded me of Pooh Bear, add to this the spots and dots challenge at Scrapbook Boutique - led to lots of circles here!

Couldn't wait to play with this little bear & robin set by Gillian Roberts, coloured in with Derwent Watercolour pencils and added text from My Favourite Things "Sending You a Little Christmas" set.  Vanilla cardstock embossed using Couture Creations "Swiss Dots" embossing folder, and red and dark grey cardstock cut using Spellbinders "Lacy Circles".  The paper I have used is an old line from Scenic Route, but a similar effect could be achieved by stamping.

Being a newbie to card making I'm still experimenting - LOTS!  I find that I prefer to stamp my outlined images in Stone Grey StazOn ink - what do you use?
