Gone Fishing - Teddy Bo

Good Evening everyone.
Its my bosses birthday later this month so I thought I'd better get going with his card. I hate mens cards as I always find it so hard to find images to suit. But just as I was going into panic mode, this little stamp arrived. Its Teddy Bo all ready to go fishing yippee I thought then my day just got better into Teddy Bo's shop came this brilliant backing image. You really must check out the new images - cute baby ones and a new easter and lots more!

Anyway back to this card, whilst blog hopping I came accross a new way to colour using pencils, you can use any pencils and turn them into water colours by going over them with baby oil. Now I love my pencils and had some that I'd not really used before called Derwent Drawing pencils, they are all earth tones and just perfect for this card! 

The only other thing I used was a bit of backing paper from Popcorn for Men CD and a little green card and job done! 

I'd love to hear what you think of the colouring :0)
