Today at Crafty Creations we have a great sketch and theme for you. The theme is 'Male Birthday' which is ideal for me as it is my eldest son's birthday today. We are being sponsored by Delicious Doodles who are offering four digital images of choice to one lucky winner.
Happy Birthday Shaun!
As he is a keen fisherman, he even spends his holidays fishing, I thought this stamp would be ideal for his birthday card. I bought it some time ago with him in mind but haven't inked it up until now, shame on me. I have coloured it with promarkers and chalk and put faux stitching around the edges. I have also added Diamond Glaze to the fish, reel, eyes and buttons. As I didn't have any appropriate paper printed off (my printer died the other day) I have made my own by stamping and heat embossing some fish onto brown cardstock. The strips at the bottom have been punched with a border punch and I have stamped little fishing rods onto it. I also punched one corner of the backing cardstock. Finally I used some string to tie a sailors knot and added that to another corner. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
