Bear Birthday Card (Papercraft Essentials Magazine - issue 159)

I made this card for a relative who will be celebrating his birthday shortly.

The lovely bear and sentiment was a stamp that came free with Papercraft Essentials magazine in issue 159.  I stamped him in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink for the bear face and "Black Onyx" for the hat and the sentiment.  I then coloured the image using a damp paint brush and Distress Inks.

The green stars in the background were stamped in Versafine Clair "Verdant", this stamp was in the same set as the star. Finally, I added two shades of Nuvo sequins to the surface of the card and a sticky black gem for each of the eyes.
