I come from a family that LOVES fishing. My dad has always loved fishing and now my older brother has fallen into his foot steps of loving to fish too. I remember going fishing with my dad and I thought I had a really, really big fish. We were all so excited until I pulled up a big chunk of grass reeds. LOL! The fish were jumping all around us, but we couldn’t seem to catch any that 1 day.
As soon as we were back on shore, you could see the huge fish playing all over the lake. I think they were just laughing at us. But I’m not a 100% sure. LOL!
To make the card, I first used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) to cut out the main image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the square out of some white cardstock. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to get a nice crisp image. I used various Copic markers listed below to colour in the image.
I decided to colour in the fish with PrismaColor pencils on the sentiment.
Next I ran both the coloured image and the sentiment through my Xyron Creative Station and placed both cuts over top of some green cardstock. Then I popped both up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
The base of the card is 5.5″ x 5.5″. I edged around the card and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage. For a final touch, I added a little fish under the sentiment.
