That boy loves fishing more than anything else. He keeps a pole and gear in his car in case he happens to see a spot to put his line in for even a few minutes.
I just love this stamp from Flourishes Kids Play. I've had it forever and adore the simple yet beautiful silhouettes and sentiments.
To create the background, I first stamped the image onto a scrap cardstock circle, then I lined it up side by side with the circle I intended to use. I drew a light pencil line at the horizon mark so I would know where the sky ends and water begins.
I used my Tim Holtz blenders and Hero Arts Shadow inks to blend two colors each for the sky and water. (sorry, I forgot to write them down!) All paper Papertrey Ink.
After the blending was finished, I stamped the image in Versamark ink, sprinkled with black embossing powder then heat embossed the image, stamped the sentiment, mounted on the black circle and done.
I hope he likes it.
Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by.
