Pooh Bear

Last night my youngest said "my teacher is coming back tomorrow do you have that baby card?  and can it be Winnie the Pooh?"... I said "tomorrow?" 

In my stash of things I had saved a gift card holder which had the sweet vintage images of Pooh and Christopher.  That was the only Pooh Bear image I had on hand.  I decided to create a background which works with Cath's Moxie Fab World Challenge to create your own background paper.  

I stamped the trees first along the white cardstock using the Hero Arts stamp.  I colored the trees using STAEDTLER watercolor pencils.  I sponged in the background using green, brown, yellow, orange, and two shades of blue. 

The sentiment is one I have from Verses Rubber stamps called Wee bit of Heaven. I inked up the first half of the verse and stamped it along the top.  I thought it was a little too dark with the black against the blue so I added a few white highlights from a gel pen.  They were too bright so I softened them with a touch of water. I cleaned the stamp and  inked up the bottom half and stamped it on the inside of the card: 
Isn't that beautiful?  A last minute card thrown together this morning, and my daughter was very happy with it, so a success.

Have a great Friday!
