Fishing Rules

Hey everybody! Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and spent it with your loves! My hubby gave me a diamond heart necklace with a 'floating' diamond in the center and it sure is gorgeous! It's time for another fun challenge and I'm happy to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #72 - Anything Goes! We know everybody loves the 'anything goes' challenges so come play with us! We being sponsored this time by Lacy Sunshine Stamps, DRS Designs and Imagine That! digis by Kris!

I chose the awesome Fishing Rules digi from DRS Designs for my Dad's Day card. It's really hard to not get carried away with embellishing masculine cards so I kept this one really simple... probably the most simple card I've made in a while and I'm really loving how it turned out!

Aren't these fishing rules a hoot?! As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to create with it! I had a great stamp set with fish that I used to compliment the digital image. I created the background by randomly stamping the fish, and then I fussy cut two fish that I colored with Spectrum Noir markers and clear Wink of Stella to make them look wet and slimy, lol! The only other embellishments I used were twine and three brass square metal studs.

The inside sentiments and fishing lure image were from the same stamp set, which I stamped on a layered panel.

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Paper Accents Kraft cardstock, Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla cardstock (#101650), brown cardstock scraps
  • Stamps: DRS Designs Fishing Rules digital image, GKD Gone Fishing stamp set
