This is a birthday card for an 88 year old man who enjoys fishing and humor...I think this will fit the bill! This comical image is from Class Act Stamps which I found at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp show I attended this past fall. I don't (or I didn't) know anyone who fishes that I normally send cards to, but the image was too funny and too cheap not to pick up!
I colored the image with Prismas and oms. It's stamped on Gina K's Pure Luxury 120 lb. white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is truly the heaviest and smoothest paper I have ever used. It was a joy to blend the Prisma's on this paper! I was skeptical at first using my Copics on it, but the resulting image (which will be shown later this month) changed my mind. I painted H2O's over the pencil on the fish. I also painted Shimmerz in Angel Wings over the water which you don't really see in the photo. The dp is Cogsmo from Cosmo Cricket and the brads are from American Crafts. The Dream Big sentiment is from Stampendous.
I wanted to keep the card simple both for mailing and for male! It's hard not to use a lot of bling and bows or flowers...but then I feel like it's too plain. I could have taken it apart and crazy sponged ink on it, but I was too lazy. Anyway, yesterday was my one year blogaversary and you know what that means...stay tuned!
