This is the gorgeous TeddyBo and a stamp called 'Gone Fishing'. My friend Chrissy has done a lot of Teddy Bo cards and she colours them so beautifully with Prismacolor Pencils, so thanks Chrissy for introducing me to Teddy Bo and Prisma! I have seen this image on quite a few websites and thought my dad would love it, so when my daughter asked me to make a Father's Day card to give her grandfather I thought this would be just the ticket! It's perfect for Father's Day or male Birthday.
The papers are from Papermania 'Verde Paper Pack'. Image is mounted on Nestabilities. Sentiment is from Lili of The Valley 'Dreamy Days' Set. Button, string, frog, gems are from stash. Little leaves are done with Papermania leaf Punch.
I think I got a bit carried away with my shading and was a tad heavy with the French Grey Prisma and so he looks quite a weathered old bear now, bless LOL !!
