I chose to play with images from the Guy Stuff Collection- Fishing Vest, Hanging Fish and Fishing Rod.

I stamped the vest three different times so I could layer the pockets, collar and sleeves to add dimension.  I stamped the fish twice so I could add one more fish  for interest.  I painted the images using Ranger Distress reinkers mixed with water and cut them out . Hint:  I put a tiny dot of reinker right in the lid of the ink pad and use the lid like a palette. When I finish I just put the lid on the pad and the remaining reinker will be there when I need it the next time.  No waste. 

I created a simple water background on watercolor paper using Distress ink, a sponge, a mask and a hand cut cloud template.  I used the mini fern stamp from my Kittie Kits Outdoor Master to add a little grassy ground area.

I created a double matted frame to mount over the scene and attached to the card base using mounting tape. I attached the images to the scene and frame to complete.  I thought the cutest little touch was adding thread to the fishing rod.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great time checking out all the wonderful projects our design team has to share with you today.
