For PaPa (Video)

Hi friends,
 I have a Father's Day card for my sons' grandpa to share today along with a video of how it came together.
Here's the card:
 and the innie:
  I used a Mirror Image stamp (from Rubber Stampede) I've had forever and a day so, I don't know if it is available. However, Paper Smooches and So Suzy Stamps offer versions of the mirror image stamp. I used the mirror image stamp so both cubs are facing PaPa bear. It's a tricky process using that mirror image stamp! But here are a couple of tips I have for you:
1) Using Versafine Onyx Black ink gave the cleanest, darkest impression.
2) Press DOWN FIRMLY on the image to transfer without rubbing or shifting the paper.
3) Use a Copic multiliner (if using Copics) to trace the image so it looks like the original image.

I will apologize in advance about the coloring part of the video... as some of it was out of frame... ok, a lot was out of frame :( lol. but you're not missing was super simple coloring.

Here's the video:
Or watch it on my YouTube Chanel ---> HERE.

I thought this would be a great stamp set for PaPa's card since he and the boys go on fishing trips with him *Ü*

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments section and I will do my best to reply.
