Bear Hugs: Lake Full of Fish Card

What a busy week! I came back from On Stage to a full week of events, including Stamp Club and a big card class that I hosted with a few of my demonstrator friends over in the Springfield area. We each designed and prepared 3 cards for 40 stampers. The class went great! But it was a lot of work and I'm happy to return to a less hectic schedule this week.

Here's one of the three cards that I designed for the class. The layout is almost identical to the "girl version" I posted last month. This card would be perfect for so many occasions: Father's Day, Retirement, or Birthday!

I stamped the bear in Basic Black ink on Soft Suede cardstock and then used a sponge dauber to add some shading with the Chocolate Chip ink pad. For the fish, I watercolored with Old Olive ink (I should have added more color!) and then added some touches of Gold Wink of Stella to mimic iridescent fish scales. I love that Curvy Corners Trio Punch! Make sure to get it before it retires!
