GONE FISHING

Since it is getting close to Father's Day I figured I should make a card. Most of the men and boys I know like to fish so I thought this would make a nice card. Actually, fishing is a good summer sport for all ages of both girls and boys. There are twelve layers on the front of this card. To me it is a very versatile card that can even be used for birthday, friendship or even a thank you card. I am going to enter it in the My Time to Craft challenge, The Inspirational Card Sketch challenge, Cafe Mojo, One Stop Craft challenge, The Dutch Double Dare challenge, and Lili of the Valley challenge.

I stamped and heat embossed the image, then colored it with copics. I cut out the fish and popped him up. I added crystal effects to the rocks and parts of the water. Then a little stickles.

The inside stamp is a Creative Image stamp. It has also been stamped and heat embossed. I sponged the background paper and used a spica glitter pen to accent.

Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment. If you have any questions, please email me.
