Eat, Sleep, Fish.......
Most men would be perfectly happy to go on a permanent vacation to a quiet lake. Alas, work and life keeps that dream from happening most of the time. Today I would like to post another card I created with Theresa Momber's new stamp set called "Gone Fishing". It is available from Gina K. Designs. It has images that can create projects with that fisherman in mind, but it also can create tender moments between a Father and child.My card base is Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss card stock. I created a frame for my scene by running a piece of Kraft PL through my Cuttlebug and giving it a wood graining. I cut it into equal size strips that were fastened with brads on the corners. I sponged the frame to show the texture. I then stamped one of the fish in the set and cut it out with an oval Nestabilities. Using the die as a guide, I sponged a darker rim and then traced the inner circle with a white gel pen. the fish had a have a few accents also. My scene was colored in Copics and the sky and grass were sponged with Versamagic chalk ink.
