Bears Gone Fishing

When the Gill Roberts Collection Best Dad Ever stamp set was released, I had the perfect person in mind for a Father's Day card.  My brother-in-law loves to go fishing and this year is extra special because it's his very first Father's Day.  His son--my nephew--Blake, was due June 14th but surprised everyone by arriving five weeks early.  So, both my sister and brother-in-law were able to celebrate Mother's and Father's Day in style this year with their first child.

I colored the image with my Copics and used Colorless Blender with a wash cloth to add texture to the fur.  The Kraft cardstock base needed something extra so I added score lines to frame out the card.  I also added some Eucalyptus Stickles to the grass and shrubs and white gel pen stitch marks to the blue layer.  I also wanted to keep the card pretty flat for mail purposes.
