I have quite a few men in the family who enjoy fishing, and their birthdays are around this time of year, so it is a bit of a stretch sometimes coming up with cards for them all.
This is for one of the younger ones, so I had a bit of fun with it...
I started with some light blue cardstock and stencilled over it in Danube Blue, moved the stencil slightly, and then added Bamboo Leaves. It was a bit blah, so then I moved the stencil again and used Versamark ink , and silver embossed that...
On the stencil, which is called Mini Moving Vines, the design slopes down on one side, so I flipped the it over and repeated the process until I was happy with the panel.
The fish was silver embossed on a wee piece of white card, and painted with Sparkling H2O's.
I then cut a slit in the background panel, following the lines of the 'seaweed' and slipped him in behind.
Some green and silver washi tape finished the card inside.
