It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Norman – Q038 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Worlds Greatest Fisherman – H159 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Norman is very happy today as he caught a magnificent Lobster. My dad LOVES fishing and can’t wait to go fishing again. Hopefully, that time will come soon and then he’ll be smiling just like Norman with his big catch of the day!
To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I used Belle Blvd – Secrets of the Sea paper for the main background.
I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then die cut it with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles. I cut a slightly larger circle out of Orange cardstock with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and glued it down on top of the background paper. I coloured in the background using a variety of Copic Refill inks, Colorless Blender and a Q-Tip which I used to apply the colours. For the water, I wisped several colours back and forth and then added some Copic Colorless Blender and wisped the colours one last time. Lastly, I added some white caps by dabbing Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point onto the surface. I completed colouring in the rest of the image with Copic markers and then popped it and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The sentiment was die cut with Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX.
