Happy Father's Day, Papa Bear

Hi, Friends....

My pastor's wife asked me to make a Father's Day card for her hubby, our pastor. They have a toddler son and so I chose this adorable Winnie & Walter bear image. My focal image background is die cut from one of my marker refill water backgrounds. I sponged over the bears with Distress Ink and did a little shading with Distress Markers.

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts stamp set
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Versafine Ink in Onyx Black
Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge
Distress Markers in Hickory Smoke and Vintage Photo
Core'dinations Kraft cardstock
DCWV patterned paper
Buttons from stash
Twine from stash

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. I love how it turned out. Thank you for stopping by!!!
