Let's Go Fishing

Good Day All,

I hope you all are having a good start to your week. Today at Crafty Sentiments Designs we are having a New Challenge - For A Man so this is a good time to start those early Father's Day cards or Happy Birthday Cards for the lovely men your your life. :D  

I chose Let's Fish stamp from Crafty Sentiments Store for my man card. It's the first time I think I've combined so many stamps in one card, plus got to use my NEW Cricut Explore. :D  This is such a cute stamp. I absolutely love it, reminds me of my hubby when we would go fishing he would be so excited if he caught one.

Here is my card -
I think it turned out cute. 
I did water coloring on my image with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. 
Water was water-colored with Gelato's and used Copics for my
water waves and splash I drew for the fish. 

I like how the his hat and clothing turned out
cause they look worn out. Something guys would wear for fishing. 

Close Up of Let's Fish Image. I used glossy accents on my fish. 

Fishing Pole and Fish Cut from Cricut Explore Outdoor Man & Home Organization Cartridges
and used black wire as my string & hook.
