I recently bought a new stamp set from the local shop that had been imported, and unbranded.
They have a Steampunk look to them, and I love them, and I have several men in the extended family who love to fish!
This card started with a 'mop up' piece, using Catherine Pooler Aquatini ink, then sprayed with a silver mica spray to further mimic water
I stamped and silver embossed the image, and then painted it with mica based paints.
I wanted to frame the image, and ended up cutting two hexagons using Hero Art Infinity dies from silver mirror card, and offset them around the fish.
The sentiment was sliver embossed on vellum which I cut to a double banner shape, and mounted over a thin scrap strip of the same mirror card.
I also added a rectangle of card under opposite corners of the main panel, and used a silver pen to freehand 'stitch' around the balance of the panel.
I used a Riley's Funny Bone Stamp in the centre.
