Fall Fishing

Welcome everyone Amanda here today and I'm giddy to be sharing my card with you. I loved this sweet fishing squirrel from the Outdoor Fun stamp set and wanted to create a tag with him on it. But when I went through my Pixi Dust tag dies...the circle tag jumped out at my looking just like one of those old school red and white fishing bobbers! The rest is history!

To start off, I stamped and colored some images from Outdoor Fun and die cut them out, thinking I was making a tag.  But when I came across Tag B dies, I had to go with the giant fishing bobber idea. So I cut all the pieces to make two and used liquid glue to adhere them. Then I stamped my sentiment on one.

Next, I did a little ink blending and watercolor splatter to create a background for my scene. I used distress oxide inks in mowed lawn and tumbled glass with blending brushes and pearl watercolor from LH Colors for a little shimmer.

Now we assemble all of the pieces to a card base. Start by popping up the ink blended panel with foam tape on a card base. Then, glue down the bobbers with liquid glue and add the images with foam squares.

The top of the card was missing something so I decided to add a little cloud cover so no one gets sunburned today. Isn't this just adorable and so fun!?!

This set is going to make it really easy to make masculine cards for tons of
occasions which I love too!
