Fishing Is The Life For Me

Hello and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card that I used with a brand new Just For Fun stamp! This card is so fitting for my husband. We purchased a new boat this year and he has really enjoyed fishing off shore. We have eaten so many good fresh fish including mahi mahi, grouper, trigger fish, red and black snapper and wahoo!

I pulled out this fun background from my stash where I had dotted some white and blue acrylic paint onto purple card stock, then placed another piece of card stock over the paint and peeled the two pieces apart. The result were these wavy lines that reminded me of the ocean. I made a slit along the waves at the bottom using an exacto knife and placed the boat image down in the slit. The boat was colored using Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a water brush. I stamped the fun new saying at the top of the card.

This card also goes along with this month's challenge theme -- stripes. We would love for you to join the challenge! You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
