Happy Furry Father's Day

In honor of Father's Day, I decided to get grizzly again with a little marker watercolor. I love this technique, but have to admit sometimes I get lazy about mixing two colors. This time, I did it by the book!

I used my new bears from the RRD Getting Grizzly plate for the bears and the sentiment from the Bits and Pieces collection also from Rogue Redhead Designs. I colored the sky as well but it is such a subtle blue that it did not translate in my picture. I did really love how the various colors had blended when it finally dried. I turned out just like I like it - nice and simple!
