Beary good luck

I bought this starry stencil and a metallic blue ink pad in a recent shopping spree, so I was bursting to use them.  This card for a friend in work was the perfect excuse.  He's got a new job as a manager of his local forest park, so I thought this oldie Stampin Up bear would give him a laugh, hopefully there's no wild ones where he's going ;)  I also used this oldie tree stamp from Eat Cake Graphics and then watercoloured in some grass.  Just noticed I've forgotten to colour in the tree trunks.  My bear is popped up on foam pads and clear gloss added to his nose and teeth.  Elizabeth Bell square stitched die.

And here's that inkpad again, this time with a honeycomb stencil.  I probably would have done my background in yellow if I had a yellow ink pad, which I don't! 
Stamps from Janes Doodles - Doggy, bee and kite popped up on foam pads.

The bear card is so much fun. I think your colleague will love it! I like your starry background, too. That stencil will come in handy for Christmas cards. Your doggy/bee card is sweet, as well. I need to do more backgrounds like yours. I have a few stencils, but have rarely used them.

Not sure I want to go 'into the woods' Lynne. Your bear looks fierce. The card is perfect for our challenge. I love the stenciling you've done on both cards. Thanks for joining us at Cardz4guyz. Love Dawn x
