I wanted to make a card for an avid fisher, and was so pleased I had recently bought this stamp.
I painted the image with watercolours - I added the black to the shirt to give the impression of checks, as the recipient frequently wears checked shirts.
After running the darker gelato around the edge of the image panel
I mounted it to one side of the textured panel I had made on the white layer.
This layer was made by embossing a die , then rubbing over two tones of blue gelatos and blending them with my finger.
I stamped the greeting by electric light, and thought I had matched the blue ink with the gelato - I discovered the next day that it was not so, which reinforces my resolve never to try and match colours in anything but daylight!
