Gone Fishing – It’s Your Day – Celebrate

I’m always looking for good images for masculine cards and ran across this Gone Fishing stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I know a lot of fishermen and thought it would make a great card.

I stamped this image with Memento Tuxedo Black because I planned to color it with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was done I decided to make a smaller rectangle die cut so that I could add a wood embossed background using Sizzix’s Lumber 3D Embossing Folder. I ran Distress Oxide Vintage Photo Ink over the embossing to bring out the look of the wood. I matted it on a dark chocolate rectangle and then adhered it to a kraft cardbase.
