Stampin’ Up! CCMC397 Happy Birthday

March 16, 2016

One of our good friends has a birthday today.  He is a golf professional who likes to enjoy the outdoors and fish whenever he can.  So Kal, this card is for you!  Happy Birthday!

The sketch from Create with Connie and Mary #397 is the basis for today’s card.  I used the aqua painter for coloring the fish and sponged the background.  I added some Crystal Effects for the bear’s eyes and nose and some Wink of Stella for the fish.

I hope you enjoy today’s card.  Have a great day and thank you for stopping by today.

    What an awesome, outdoorsy, natural look you have achieved here with your fisher-bear! Love how you brought out the eyes and nose with Crystal Effects – I must remember to do that, too! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!
