Gardening Grandpa


Yes, I know, ANOTHER father's day card, sorry! This is the last of my customer orders though, then I just have to do one for hubby from the boys. And then I'll start working through a looooong list of orders for teacher/ nursery thank you cards! At least I get to use some girly stuff on those though :o)

I've used another of Di's fabby images, this one is Gardening Pop and he's available here. He's coloured with promarkers as usual - I've not had time to write out a list of shades used (doing well with that aren't I eh?), but thought I'd share the colours I used for the bear, because I like this combi for bears - I used vanilla, then sandstone for the shaded areas, then went over all the sandstone with apricot to warm it up a bit, then over again with vanilla - it looks awful while you're colouring, but I love it when it's finished. The papers are MME, cardstock is coredinations - one piece is embossed with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder. Added a freebie sentiment from The Creative Cottage, and the Grandpa text is computer generated.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
