Good morning friends!
It has been hotter than heck here for a week or more and expected to stay that way!!! Yikes!
So, I have a nice cool card for summer weather...what could be better than a glassy blue lake with trout jumping about! I think it is a mountain lake too, nice an cool!
There are clouds in my sky but ratzola, you can not see them!
So I started by making a frame the size of the card (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) and then cut the rectangle out of the center. Using my stamp aligner, I lined the new ruler stamp, (916H Ruler) on the sides then masked off the ends of the ruler and stamped the ruler top and bottom. I used Tea Stain Distress ink and sponged the edges, especially the corners. I also took a darker Copic Marker and colored in the space just inside the rulers to look like a darker mat.
I stamped and colored my image (351L Jumping Fish) and popped my frame up over it. I then stamped my pole (270G Fishing Pole) and sentiment (1103D Hooked On You) separately and fussy cut the pole and used a die for the sentiment.
I glued the pole down onto the frame and let the line stay free (just in case that fish bites, LOL). I also glued the sentiment down like a placket, after sponging with Tea Stain.
I used Stickles Crystal on the fish.
That's it, done! This would make a great guy card, don't you think? Well, my hubby would love it anyway, he is a fisherman!
Thanks for visiting today!!
