A bear behind! ;)

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Father’s Day/Masculine.We have the fabulous Eureka Stamps and The Robin’s Nest as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I chose the wonderful Bears and Bees digi stamp by Eureka Stamps  and coloured them with Copic Ciao Markers,trying to get a little fuzziness into those bears.I thought this would be a great image to use as this card is for my DS1,who is well known for getting himself into sticky situations,to give to his dear old Dad 🙂 I made a border of hexagons,embossed,sanded then cut from a template and stapled together.I used some fab papers from my stash,more staples and a sentiment made by me on the ‘puter.The finishing touch is a trio of threaded buttons.

    Love all the hexagons especially given the bees in the image. The embossing and staples add lovely texture and playfulness. You’ve achieved a wonderful furry look to your bears. I also really like the colour palette you have chosen.

    You have coloured the bears brilliantly. I really like how the textural top layer matches the pattern of the backing paper beneath it. A fabulous Father’s Day card
