Hooked on You!

>> Saturday, July 30, 2016

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!!

What a wonderful card Robin! Definitely a "man" card! Love the green frame - and you certainly tricked me into thinking it was layered on a mat! Love your write up too - I can almost feel the cool mountain breeze through the pines :)

Robin, this is a great masculine card. I'm sure your hubby would love it. Great use of the ruler image and I love how you colored the fish so bright and cheery!

Totally awesome way to use this new ruler image! Love that green frame - really makes the colors in the fish pop. Awesome fishing card - I am going to have to case it!!! Hugz

Super card, Robin! Love the colors & that ruler frame will make it hard for the fisherman to claim the fish was bigger, lol.
