I've created this card for my brother John's birthday. John is an avid hunter and fisherman, plus so much more...he's a really great guy, and I'm truly honored to have him as my brother! :)
I've always loved this image from Stampin' Up. It is retired, as is the pewter HodgePodge Hardware that I've chosen. I colored the image with Copics and added a bit of sparkle with a clear Copic Spica Glitter pen. Unfortunately, it doesn't show at this angle in the photo, but it has a slight gleam IRL.
My paper color choices are a bit unconventional, but I wanted to let the image take center stage. I colored my twill with my Copic marker to match the papers. I choose this Cuttle Bug folder as it reminded me of weeds growing underwater-- a perfect place for fish to hide!
It's a beautiful Autumn Day here-- I've been busy cooking as my husband, father, brother and Pastor are working on the addition that we're adding to our home. We're hoping to enclose it before the snow hits-- and today is a perfect working day!
Gotta get back to feeding the men! Have a wonderful Saturday!
