Fishing Bear Card using Watercolor Pencils

Fishing Bear card using Inktense Watercolor pencils

Wow - can you believe it's almost the end of August? 

Where did the time go? As summer is wrapping up it's last few weeks, I wanted to go back and make another card using our Campfire Tails stamp set! Although camping is mainly a summer activity I think this fishing bear could be used for nearly any time of year - especially if you know someone who likes to fish! Both my father and my father-in-law are big on fishing so I can see using this set to make cards for them!

To create this card I stamped the bear on some watercolor paper and colored him using Inktense colored pencils and a water brush. I really had fun coloring him. I love how vibrant those pencils are... you get the watercolor look but still have that bright color!  I just color around the inside edges of each part of the image and then very lightly across the rest. Then you use a water brush to move and blend the color around. 

I also used some patterned paper from my stash that had an outdoors theme and used the "hooked on you" sentiment from the same stamp set.

Here's a close-up of the card so you can see the coloring:

Is anyone going fishing or camping this weekend?
