Gone Fishing .....

Hello my crafty peeps!

Yesterday at Tea and Crafting we decided to use the Bear Hugs bundle from Stampin' Up!
we used sponging, and copics.

Cindy - with her finished project
The idea of sponging the background, I cased from Frenchie 's video Beach Time... Thought this would work as a lake setting if i just switched up the colours.  I liked the idea of using the white gel pen to mimic the waves or ripples on the water.

Cindy's version (copics used on bear)

Marie's version (sponged bear)


  • Old Olive 4¼ x 11 score at 5½ 
  • Crushed Curry 5¼ x 4 
  • Very Vanilla or Whisper White 5 x 3¾ (2 pieces)
  • Sponge with Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar and Old Olive on base about 1/3 of the way up.
  • Sponge with Marina Mist, touch of Tempting Turquoise for the lake then switch to Soft Sky
  • stamp in Old Olive the grass from the Wetlands set then sponge with Baked Brown Sugar at grass base.
  • Using the white gel pen make small lines to look like ripples on the lake.
  • Stamp your bear in Memento and then either sponge in Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Sugar and Chocolate Chip or colour with Copics or Promarkers.
  • Colour  3 fish with Copics or Promarkers and then top them off with clear Wink of Stella.
  • With your poker poke holes in paws and thread some line thread through for your fishing line.
  • Then choose a greeting.
  • on the inside you can stamp a fish or something to spruce it up!
Hope you like them!

If I can give you just a little inspiration, where you can look at one of my cards and think I can do that, or I could tweak that and put my own spin on it, then I am achieving what I have set out to do! 

P.S. Please share. with your friends and leave me a comment below. I read them ALL!
