Welder Bear

My nephew just finished his schooling for his 4th year Journeyman welder (he is only 20!) so I wanted to make him a card to congratulate him. I had to do some quick thinking as I don't own any "welding" stamps & don't know anyone who does, so I went to trusty ol' GOOGLE!!! I searched for colouring pictures of welders and would you believe it? I found a few! I was so happy!!! I was thrilled to find 5 or 6 pages of these bears, all in different uniforms for different jobs or careers. So if you are looking for anything out of the ordinary, Google images is a life saver!!! You may have to sift through a few pages but you will probably find what you are looking for!!!! Anyway, here is the card I came up with:




The silver plate piece is actual a cuttlebug folder on silver paper, which is totally cool for guy cards! I used some screw brads in the corners and some crystal lacquer on his helmet. The flame is orange stickles over top red Copic marker and I added the Stardust Sakura gel pen to the tool thingy (not sure what it is called, I'm sure he will kill me when he hears I called it a thingy!!!)


Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!!!

Oh your nephew is just going to love this card - it's awesome. So clever of you to go hunting for an image! Who would have thought they would have colouring pictures of a bear welding! I love the silver paper and the little screw brads you've added. Perfectly wonderful card.
