Fishing Bear!

I finally got some time to play with the Stampin' Up! "Under the Stars" set. I bought it when the catalog came out because that bear was so cute but I never put it together. And as time went by I kept asking myself why I bought the set!!! Ever do that???? I've seen a lot of cute things done with this set and it was probably one sample I saw that made me want it? Ever done that???

I took out the bear and as I was looking at him I thought it would look cute to make it look like he had a string of fish. And with the word "grrrreat" in the set I thought if I combined it with the word "dad" from the "Holiday Blitz" set I could do a "grrrreat dad" card for Father's Day.

I used "Lovely as a Tree" in the background. I used the airbrush to do the sky and grass. I was going to sponge it in but I didn't have enough clean sponges. UGH!!! I usually make sure I have a few leaned up, dry and ready to go. But it's ok, I like using the airbrush.

I actually used 4 stamp sets to make this card. This card would not only be a good card for Father's Day but a masculine birthday card. Oh and if you are having a fish fry it would make a fun invitation card!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting,
Wanda
