Gone Fishin'

Now for those of you who follow me regularly, you'll know that I don't often do "cute" so I'm not sure what came over me when I decided to use this image! However, cute or not I had loads of fun making this card and got to use lots of new "toys" on it!!


The DP's were on a roll like wrapping paper and I have no idea who makes them, but they are double sided and very large!!! The kraft paper side has been matted onto bazzil cardstock before being run through the Big Shot using a Texturz Plate to emboss the square design. The dotty bracket is part of one of the Tim Holtz Alterations On The Edge Dies. The ribbon is more of the DP's.

The image was stamped onto smooth white cardstock which has then been trimmed to size. I've used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the edges on both the image and the Bracket. The edges of the image have been given a dusting of Distress Ink prior to stamping the sentiment with Versafine. The image has then been coloured with Promarkers. I added some Craftwork Cards Card Candy coloured with Promarkers to finish the card off.

Thanks for stopping by today.
