Morning Paper Shy Bear

I am doing some purging of old wood rubber stamps and I ran across this particular one and I think I am going to keep it around a bit longer. I love this image and it works for masculine cards for many occasions. For that reason I did not add a sentiment as it could be a birthday, retirement, get well or a just because type of card. The stamp image is from the Merry Stamper line and can be found at I Brake For Stamps.



I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink on white card stock and then colored it with my Zig watercolor markers and did a more or less scribbly type of coloring. In other words I did not do a lot of blending.


The image was die cut with a Memory Keepers stitched borders die and from there I layered it onto black. Before I added this panel to the base card of turquoise card stock I added some black and white fiber to add a bit of an accent to the card.


This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Double D's Blog Challenge-One for the Boys
Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #44 -Masculine
Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

And as always thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

  3. Oh Verna this bear and your card is simply adorable. No way would I get rid of that stamp. As you said great for male cards or that bear could even be female and reading a craft magazine lol. Love it. Such a lovely change from seeing girly cards.

  7. Such a fun image...check out his leg is on the table! I'm going to say those are donuts instead of bagels....donuts are much more delish than bagels.

  8. Darling image, Verna, and such a wonderful color palette! Recently, our newspaper was purchased by another company. Somehow, our name just kept falling off the delivery person's route - even though we had the same delivery person! LOL Jack is the one who reads the paper. Anyway, it's been about a month, and he has switched from the paper to the iPad LOL Less recycling.

    I love your card! (can I stop by for one of the dough-nuts?) xo
